LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A Plainview man is sentenced to life in prison for a December manhunt that lasted three days. He was indicted in February for attempted capital murder. Authorities say 32-year-old Ramiro Chavira ran at least two police cars off the road during a chase in late December of 2009.
Officers were trying to take him into custody for violation of a protective order. He got away, but was spotted again two days later. Olton Police finally captured him.
A Lamb County jury found Chavira guilty of attempted capital murder on Tuesday, and sentenced him Wednesday.
