Two men charged in Lubbock's first homicide of the year remain in custody. 30-year-old Daniel Richard Covarrubias and 35-year-old Joe Michael Villarreal are being held on a $100,000 bond. Both are charged in the death of Louis "Red" Zavala.
Zavala was found dead last Saturday in his home at 124 North Avenue V. Preliminary autopsy reports show he died from blunt force trauma.
Six days before his death, police say Zavala was involved in some sort of domestic dispute that left him with injuries to his face and head. Officers are investigating if the dispute ultimately led to Zavala's death.
