Texas: Illegal immigrant charged in teen's murder

Texas: Illegal immigrant charged in teen's murder

A Texas grand jury has charged an undocumented immigrant named Rafael Govea Romero with capital murder in connection to the brutal killing of 16-year-old Lizbeth Medina.

The indictment alleges that Romero intentionally caused Lizbeth's death while in the course of attempting to commit burglary, robbery, or sexual assault.

The document outlines the horrific details of the incident, including fatal injuries inflicted on the teenager.

The document also alleges Romero killed Medina by causing the teenager's "head to strike a firm surface," "striking" her head "with a hard object" and "repeatedly stabbing or cutting" her "with a sharp object or edged weapon."

Lizbeth's mother, Jacqueline Medina, expressed her distress over the indictment but emphasized the importance of seeking justice for her daughter.

It's very disturbing to me," Lizbeth's mother, told Fox News Digital of the indictment, adding that she thinks the grand jury handed down the capital murder charge because of "all the evidence and all the other details" in the case.

“I don't want to miss anything at all, not if I can help it, because my baby deserves justice, and I want to be part of it," she said.

Jacqueline plans to be actively involved in every step of the legal process to ensure that Lizbeth's memory is honoured and that accountability is upheld.
