Skip to comments.Texas father won't face charges in alleged attacker's death
Posted on 06/19/2012 4:32:17 PM PDT by Doogle
Authorities say a Texas father who beat to death a man who tried molesting his 5-year-old daughter will not be charged.
Officials said the grand jury met Tuesday and declined to return an indictment against the father in the death of 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores.
The attack happened on the family's ranch between the farming towns of Shiner and Yoakum. Investigators said the 23-year-old father ran toward his daughter's screams, pulled Flores off his child and beat him with his hands.
Authorities say forensic evidence and witness accounts corroborated the father's story that his daughter was being sexually molested.
Earlier, the Lavaca County Sheriff's Office said in a statement that the death would be treated as a homicide investigation, and the case was sent to the grand jury.
