Thank you Jenny Smith and Laura Bates for your hard work.
I am very glad for his poor victim that Mr. Medillin was found guilty for the assault and murder of Antonia Espinoza.
Perhaps now she can rest in peace.

Jury finds Medellin guilty of murder, aggravated assault
A Comal County jury made up of seven women and five men barely had time to catch their breath Wednesday after convicting a New Braunfels man of assaulting and killing his fiancée before hearing testimony in the penalty phase of the case.
Jurors found Albert Rodriguez Medellin guilty of one count each of murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury against a household member. Jurors heard testimony beginning Feb. 20 until they began deliberations Tuesday.
