The man charged with killing two women and kidnapping a 2-year-old boy in Rhode Island has a criminal history that includes a previous murder arrest. Daniel Rodriguez was charged in the 2003 shooting death of Tyrone Tate, 26, in a Providence housing project. Court records show that case was dismissed in 2006 after a witness failed to appear in court. Rodriguez was also charged in 2007 with the attempted kidnapping of a former girlfriend. WJAR-TV reported that the case was dropped when she refused to testify. Rodriguez is now charged with killing another former girlfriend, 40-year-old Evelyn Burgos, and her daughter, 25-year-old Vanessa Perez, in Johnston Sunday.
