Lubbock Man Going To Trial For Capital Murder

Michele Lovato Michele Lovato

The Lubbock man accused of kidnapping and killing his wife is now one step closer to a trial. A Lubbock grand jury indicted Steven Lovato on a capital murder charge in the death of his wife, Michele Lovato.

One of the reasons Lovato is being charged with capital murder is because Lovato is also accused of kidnapping his wife. Police say Steven and Michele were in the process of getting a divorce when he showed up at her home in the 2900 block of Fordham on November 12th.

Lovato allegedly used a knife from Michelle's kitchen to kidnap her. Hours later, Michelle's body was found in a van near 106th and Chicago. She had been stabbed to death.

Tuesday, the grand jury felt there was enough evidence for the case to go trial. If convicted, Lovato faces life in prison or the death penalty.
