El Paso, Texas (KTSM) — A fight over loud music and drinking led to the murder of one man's mother-in-law in El Paso this weekend, according to two arrest affidavits released Monday.
El Paso Police officers arrested Armando Muñoz, 25, for family violence and murder, after they believe he shot and killed his mother-in-law, Bobbi Hackney, early Saturday morning.
According to the affidavit on the family violence, it all started when munoz and his wife got into an argument over how loud he was playing music at their home on Sirius Dr.
The wife told police she poured Munoz' beer down the sink because she believed he had drunk too much, and then lowered the volume on the radio, according to the affidavit.
That's when Muñoz allegedly began hitting his wife.
"The victim stated that the offender kicked her and slapped her which knocked her to the ground," reads the report. "The victim then curled up into a ball while on the ground at which time, the offender kicked her again."
The victim was said to have suffered a laceration to her bottom lip.
The victim's mother, Hackney, then tried to get between the two, according to a separate affidavit on the murder charge.
The reporting officer claims Muñoz then left to his bedroom to retrieve his Glock 22, and returned.
As he began loading the gun, the wife and Hackney tried to wrestle it out of his hand, but were unsuccessful.
Muñoz then shot Hackney, killing her, according to the report.
He is still being held in the El Paso County Detention Center on bonds totaling more than $1 million.
