LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock County grand jury says there is enough evidence to send three suspected criminals to trial.

Tuesday afternoon, jury members indicted 45-year-old Jeanne Perez on intoxication manslaughter for the deaths of Dwight Griffith, 27, and his wife Trisha, 23. Police dash cam video captured the crash on 19th and University last month. Investigators say Perez ran the light and crashed into the Griffith's motorcycle. Authorities say Perez's blood alcohol content was nearly four times the legal limit.

That same grand jury also indicted a Lubbock man for an accident on the North Loop that killed 33-year-old Paul Dewey and injured four others. Police ruled the accident road rage. Investigators say a lane dispute angered 25-year-old Mario Ortiz who they say caused the crash. Ortiz now stands indicted for failure to stop and render aid. He also faces manslaughter and aggravated assault charges.

And a man who police say opened fire in the Tejano 97 Club parking lot will go to trial for aggravated assault. Police say they saw 23-year-old Eddie Vincent Lara fire a gun into the air when they responded to a fight back in February. Officers say Lara tossed the weapon and fled the scene when they arrived. Police arrested him a short time later.
