Jury finds Ramos guilty of assault for stabbing teen
El Paso, TX (KTSM) — A jury Thursday found 24 year-old Luis Ramos guilty of aggravated assault for stabbing a teenager during a fight in 2009. Ramos stabbed 18 year-old Angel Garcia in the neck in November of 2009 during a fight at a house party in Northeast El Paso. Garcia later died at the hospital.
Ramos' attorney argued that his client was merely trying to protect his wife and two children. The sentencing phase of Ramos trial began today and will resume tomorrow morning.
