A jury in El Paso has sentenced Facundo Chavez to death for killing El Paso Sheriff Deputy Peter Herrera during a traffic stop in 2019.

Facundo Chavez, who is he?

32-year-old Facundo Chavez has been sentenced to death by an El Paso jury.

On August 3, Chavez was determined to have killed Deputy Peter Herrera of El Paso County. On Wednesday, a jury of nine women and three men gave him the death penalty. Over the course of two days, the jury deliberated for about ten hours. Chavez was given the death penalty by the same jury after it found him guilty of killing peace officer Herrera in 2019.

On Monday, August 7, family members began testifying in Facundo Chavez’s trial, which marked the beginning of the sentencing phase. Chavez begged the jury to spare him from the death penalty along with his mother, cousin, and himself.

Before the jury, Chavez’s mother testified that his father had been abusive toward her and had once sent her there with a fractured jaw. She talked about how he made her watch the violent acts with her kids.

When it was Chavez’s turn to testify, he was asked to talk about his early years. He added that quitting drugs had made it easier for him to face what he had done to Herrera. He proclaimed to the jury, “He (Herrera) didn’t deserve any of this,” adding that he now recognizes the value of life. I brought about this nightmare by killing him when it was already too late.

Diane Navarrete, the trial’s judge, advised everyone to control their emotions in the courtroom when it came time to deliver the verdict. The audience was silent when the decision was spoken aloud. Chavez didn’t appear to be responding to what the jury did.
