The Hays County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) has charged a Wimberley-area man with manslaughter in last week’s death of a Wimberley woman.

David Companie, 49, is in custody at the Hays County Jail on the manslaughter charge, a second degree felony. His bond has been set at $175,000. The victim was Kelly Kimberley Cabler, 46, of Wimberley.

HCSO deputies found Cabler lying in the roadway at the intersection of Camino Ashley and Days End Road west of Wimberley with severe injuries when they responded to a report of an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon at approximately 5 p.m. on May 13.

Cabler was transported by Wimberley EMS to a landing zone, where she was transferred to an awaiting Star Flight helicopter and flown to Brackenridge Hospital. She died a short time later at the hospital.

An investigation into Cabler’s death led investigators to suspect Companie, who was last seen driving a gold Nissan Pathfinder, the vehicle he was driving when he allegedly ran over the victim to cause her death. A warrant of arrest for manslaughter was issued for Companie.

The next morning, an HCSO deputy on routine patrol in the Summer Mountain Ranch subdivision off RR 12 between San Marcos and Wimberley spotted the suspect vehicle. The vehicle was stopped and Companie was arrested without incident.

  1. Someone should have seen this coming. Apparently this guy was already abusing animals in front of several people where he frequented. No ones fault however people like him should be questioned. People were apparently already intimidated by this man and never questioned his abuse before. Even though this guy is known to have money I hope his animals are well taken care of for they need a chance, they never got one with him. I am truly sorry for the family and friends of the victims.

  2. You obviously have mistaken his identity. The man has no money or animals. Spreading rumors and hearsay does not help the process of justice.
