Authorities say the Texas father who beat to death the man who tried molesting his 4-year-old daughter will not be charged.
Officials said the grand jury met yesterday and declined to return an indictment against the father in the death of 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores. Good news.
The beating death of a Texas man who was allegedly sexually assaulting a 5-year-girl will be treated as a homicide investigation, the Lavaca County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.For those who dont know the story click here
McMinn, the Lavaca County District Attorney, said in the statement. She went on to say the sheriff was correct not to arrest the father at the time of the incident, but "all evidence surrounding this homicide will be presented to the grand jury as soon as possible."
Sheriff Micah Harmon, according to the statement, believes the girl’s father is remorseful, and did not intend to kill Flores. He called the case "traumatizing" for the girl and her entire family.
"He was just protecting his daughter and doing what he thought he had to do to protect his daughter," Harmon said.
