San Antonio, TX- The felony murder trial for a Texas man accused of killing two adults and two of their children while fleeing from began this week and was marked by tearful testimony by witnesses of the tragedy that unfolded on Father’s Day in 2013.
Prosecutors allege that George Munoz was fleeing from police and driving at a high rate of speed when he slammed into a car carrying a San Antonio family. The high-impact crash instantly killed Wesley Lindsay, 27; Kathy Castillo, 25; and their two sons Davon, 3; and Edward, 7. One child, Travion Lindsay, 4, was the only survivor in the car, according to My San Antonio.
Officer Israel Escareno testified that he saw Munoz menace another motorist with a gun, so he decided to intervene. My San Antonio reports that Officer Escareno tuned on his lights and tried to stop Munoz, but he took off instead, slamming into the front of Escareno’s patrol car before speeding away.
Officer Escareno told the he tried to pursue Munoz, but he couldn’t keep up. After a mile and a half pursuit Munoz drifted into oncoming traffic, violently striking the car, carrying the family, and causing it to burst into flames.
Munoz says he wasn’t fleeing from police and was simply trying to get away for the motorist he was arguing with when the accident occurred. He has entered a plea of not guilty to felony murder charges.
His trial will continue this week.
