January 14, 2024, is a day that a family in Garland, Texas will never forget. It was the day that their loved ones, Alan Chavez and Ruben Arzola, were shot and killed. The suspect, Amancio Anton Noriz, was arrested and is facing murder charges. The police are waiting for the judge to decide whether he will be tried as an adult or a juvenile.
According to Texas law, a minor can face 5 to 99 years in prison for the crime of homicide. However, if the suspect is about to turn 17, they could be tried as an adult. Noriz was booked by the Laredo Police Department’s fugitive task force and the United States Marshals and sent to the Webb County Juvenile Detention Center, awaiting extradition.
The extradition process can take a long time, depending on the cooperation of the governments. Additional charges are possible, and there is an additional charge in Texas for not honoring the bail imposed, which could result in more years in prison.
The families of the victims are demanding justice and hope that the person responsible for taking their loved ones’ lives will be sentenced to the maximum punishment. They are devastated by the loss and want to see the perpetrator held accountable for their actions.
