An Erath County grand jury issued indictments Wednesday in two high-profile cases.
District Attorney Alan Nash told Beneath the Surface News that Jesus Manuel DeLeon was indicted for murder in the March shooting death of his ex-girlfriend Dora Santamaria Hernandez.
According to an arrest affidavit, a witness told investigators that he watched Deleon approach the 42-year-old victim with a handgun, shooting her once in the chest in front of a residence in Dublin.
Deleon is being held on a $1 million bond at the Erath County Jail.
Garrett Reeves was indicted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly shooting his father, Erath County auditor Kent Reeves, at the family’s residence in April.
Because he is accused of shooting a family member, the charge has been upgraded to a first degree felony.
Garrett Reeves is being held on a $500,000 bond at the Hood County Jail.
