Thanks to whoever gave the tip on this.
Let the system fire up and the process begin as to guilt/innocence.
Three held in slaying outside VFW Hall -SAEN
Three men were arrested and facing capital murder charges in last month's slaying of a man who tried to defend his mother-in-law during an attempted purse snatching.
Manuel Barrera, his wife and her mother were leaving a VFW Hall on Frio City Road on Oct. 10 when men got out of a van and attempted to rob Barrera's mother-in-law. Barrera was shot and killed trying to fend off the robbery.
The men fled in the van without taking the woman's purse. The van, which had been stolen during a carjacking earlier that night, was later burned and abandoned on the East Side.
Police said a confidential infromant led them to the suspects.
