A slain singer
Tejano music star Selena Perez Quintanilla, known simply as Selena, performs in the Alamodome in San Antonio, on March 18, 1995. Selena was killed March 31, 1995, in Corpus Christi, Texas, and Yolanda Saldivar, who managed Selena's boutique in San Antonio, has been charged in the killing.
