Lubbock Police Break 2002 Deadly Stabbing Case With Four Suspects In Custody

Lubbock authorities make an arrest in a two and a-half year-old murder.

22-year-old Daniel Jimenez Junior was arrested and arraigned for the murder of Armando Ybarra late Tuesday afternoon. He and three other men are accused of stabbing the 39-year-old in 2002. Ybarra's body was found in front of St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church on Broadway.

The three other suspects in this case are already in custody, including Daniel's father, Daniel Jimenez Senior. He is jailed in Lubbock County along with Francisco Calderon. Juan Luna is being held at Hale County Jail. All three are currently in jail, charged with other murders. All four are believed to be involved in the Texas Prison Syndicate gang. It's a Mexican prison gang that's accused of murders all over the state of Texas.

As for the murder of Armando Ybarra, Assistant District Attorney Matt Powell is not giving a motive at this time. He does say, Tuesday's arrest is the result of more than two and half years of work on the part of Lubbock Police investigators.

"It's a testament to the police and their consistency and perseverance getting these cases investigated and presenting it to our office, that was 2002 and now it's 2005," said Lubbock County District Attorney, Matt Powell.
