RAYMONDVILLE — A 35-year-old Raymondville man is being held on $1 million bond after being charged with the first-degree murder of his missing girlfriend.

Juan Manuel Tobias Jr. was arraigned this afternoon in the case of Nora Villalobos Conde, 49, of Raymondville, last seen near her home April 19.

Municipal Court Judge Felicita Gutierrez set bail at $1 million after District Attorney Annette Hinojosa warned Tobias’ ties to family in Mexico made him a flight risk.

“He has enough money to get out with a low bond,” Gutierrez told reporters after the arraignment.

She reminded reporters Conde was the victim in case.

While Gutierrez confirmed the remains are those of Conde, the DA said she was not prepared to make the same decision because she had not received a pathology report.
