Man indicted for murder in October shooting

February 2, 2013

A murder indictment against a Big Spring man was among more than 30 true bills returned by a Howard County grand jury this week.

Christopher Daniel Marquez, 19, who is currently in the Howard County Jail, was hit with three indictments for his alleged role in an October shooting that left one man dead and another wounded.

Luis Adolfo Pena, 33, died Oct. 27, 2012 from a gunshot wound he received earlier in the day.

Sheriff's deputies had been dispatched to the old VFW lodge on Driver Road at approximately 2:33 a.m. that day and found Pena wounded in the parking lot. He was transported to Scenic Mountain Medical Center and died shortly afterward.

A second shooting victim, Raul Mendez, was transported to the hospital by private vehicle. Mendez was treated for his wounds at the emergency room and later released.

Marquez was arrested a few days later in San Angelo.

The grand jury indicted him for murder in Pena's death, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the wounding of Mendez and a third charge, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, said 118th District Attorney Hardy Wilkerson.

Marquez faces a possible life term in prison if convicted of either the murder or aggravated assault charges, while the unlawful firearm possession charge carries a possible sentence of up to 10 years in prison.
