Bond hearings canceled for two charged in murder case

Bond hearings for Fernando Resendiz and Jovencio Vega-Garcia, charged with murder and aggravated assault in connection with the fatal shooting of a security guard at the Las Delicias nightclub on East Morris Street in Dalton, have been canceled. They were scheduled for Friday.

The hearings were canceled at the request of their attorneys, District Attorney Bert Poston said in a statement. Resendiz is represented by Scott Ray, an attorney in Chattanooga, and Vega-Garcia is represented by Jerry Moncus of Dalton. No hearing date has been scheduled, Poston said.

Orlando “Smiley” Ramirez, 20, is charged with homicide and two counts of aggravated assault for the shooting death of Bruno Rodriguez, a 28-year-old security guard at Las Delicias early in the morning of March 23, and for shooting a second security guard in the neck and leg.

Resendiz, 21, and Vega-Garcia, 20, both of Whitfield County, were charged as accessories to the crimes at Las Delicias. Officials said Vega-Garcia ran and got back inside a car parked in front of the building during the shootings, and Resendiz pulled away in the car before circling back to pick up Ramirez.
