SAN ANTONIO -- A suspect taken into custody in connection to an armed robbery has also confessed to a murder.

According to Bexar County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Roseanne Hughes, 19-year-old Cameo Marcus Clines faces a Capital Murder Charge in connection to the shooting death of Xavier Cordero.

The body of Cordero, 20, was found in a cow pasture in southeast Bexar County on June 18.

Clines' alleged confession comes on the heels of another arrest in the case.  Antoinette Martinez was arrested on Monday after she confessed to robbing and then killing Cordero, the sheriff's office said.

Cordero was allegedly lured to Martinez's apartment at which point he was confronted at gunpoint and placed in the trunk of his own vehicle by Martinez and Cline, according to BCSO.

Cordero was taken to a cow pasture in the 17200 block of Donop road and shot multiple times, authorities said.

Martinez admitted to the murder when she was taken into custody Monday for a June 12 for a robbery. Martinez admitted that on June 12 she and another co-worker planned the theft of the Burger King's night deposit, where she worked. 

Martinez said she and the co-worker planned to make the theft look like a robbery and called SAPD to the Burger King in the 1500 block of North New Braunfels and told police a person in all black had taken the money. Martinez admitted to fabricating the story and said she knew it was her co-worker in all black.

The pair split the proceeds on clothing and food, she said. 

Clines was taken into custody on Sunday following the shooting of a southeast-side store clerk on Sunday.

Just after 11 a.m., officers responded to the Shop N Go Food Mart for a reported robbery and shooting.  Police said Clines brought a beverage to the store counter and told the clerk at the register he wanted to speak with the manager.

When the clerk said the manager was not available, Clines then allegedly pulled a gun and shot the clerk in the face before running out of the store, police said.

Clines ran to a nearby apartment complex triggering a stand off situation with authorities before he was taken into custody without incident.  There was no immediate word on the condition of the store clerk.

On Tuesday, KENS 5 learned Cordero is the son of SAPD Detective Xavier Cordero.

Martinez and Cline's bond has been set at $1 million.
