LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock Grand Jury is deliberating four separate manslaughter charges Tuesday.
Prosecutors are seeking an indictment in the June 6th death of Michael Ray Nicholson at the Lubbock State School. Nicholson, 45, died after a physical altercation with state school staff. In the autopsy, it was reported that there was a period of time that Nicholson's head and neck were hyperflexed, during the altercation. The cause of death was listed as a physical altercation with a period of asphyxia.
Jurors are also considering an indictment in the May death of 22-year-old Juan Miguel Deleon. Police arrived at 1902 22nd Street on May 24th, where they found Deleon severely beaten along with three other victims. Authorities believe Deleon died from blunt force trauma to the head.
The Grand Jury is also considering the evidence from a traffic accident that killed Barbara Morgan near east 4th and Loop 289 in August. Lubbock police say 54-year-old Morgan was driving west in a gray Buick on East 4th Street. Perry Wilson, 20, also in a gray car, was north bound on the access road of the East Loop. The two cars collided. Morgan was pronounced dead at the scene.
