Lubbock Jury Finds Eiguren Not Guilty

A Lubbock jury came back with a not guilty verdict for Chaz Eiguren.

Eiguren was charged with the April 2003 deaths of Veronica Flores and her two daughters. It took this jury more than two hours to make their decision, which was unanimous.

The jury was charged with determining if Chaz Eiguren acted recklessly and that action caused the death of three people. The accident off the Slaton Highway in April of 2003 resulted in the death of Veronica Flores, and her two daughters Celestina and Cassandra.

Both sides of the courtroom were emotional throughout the trial, during closing arguments the state said stick to the facts and you'll know the truth, while the defense said the evidence has proved Chaz Eiguren's innocence.

"Right now, I think we're doing okay. We're just gonna have to stick together and just be a family cause that's all it is. We respect the decision and knew it was going to be up to a jury all along," said Oscar Flores, Veronica's Brother-in-Law.

"I felt so bad, I still do. I love my daughter so much my baby daughter went to the Lord," said Marcel Saljado, Veronica's father.

As the Flores family continues coping with their loss, Eiguren, a married father of three can begin to move on with his life for the first time in two years.
