A grand jury in Lavaca County has refused to indict a Shiner father who beat another man to death for molesting his 5-year-old daughter.
The Lavaca County district attorney said Tuesday that the evidence supports the man’s story.
“Under the law in the State of Texas, deadly force is justified in order to stop and aggravated sexual assault or a sexual assault,” said Lavaca County District Attorney Heather McMinn. “All of the evidence that was presented showed that, that was in fact what was occurring when the victim’s father arrived at the scene.”
