LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A second suspect charged in connection with a south Lubbock murder has turned himself in to Lynn County authorities.

Adrian Aleman, 21, turned himself in to Lynn County authorities on Wednesday. He is charged with tampering with evidence in connection with the death of 48-year-old Henry Valdez Junior.

Henry's body was found Sunday morning on a couch, under a carport, outside his home.

Police arrested Valdez's son, 22-year-old Joshua Valdez, Monday night and charged him with his father's murder. In an arrest warrant issued for Aleman on Tuesday, it states Joshua told police that he got into a fight with his father in the drive-way before he passed out. He asked Aleman to check if his dad was still breathing, and the warrant states that he was.

Before they left, Joshua told police Aleman helped him wash away blood that was left on the driveway with bottled water. The warrant goes on to say that Joshua also told Aleman to say his dad fell while they were outside.

Joshua Valdez remains jailed on a $250,000 bond.
