Death penalty likely on the table in murder

Ellis County Assistant District Attorney Don Maxfield said he will prosecute the case against the suspects involved in the slaying of Mohammad Hashemi, and could pursue the death penalty if the men are indicted for capital murder.

He did, however, say that he trusted the work of the ECSO.
Whether the three adults are indicted on the capital murder warrants issued by the Ellis County Sheriff’s Department remains to be seen.

Eric Lee Maldonado, 21, Ruben Hernandez, 18, and Fernando Juarez, 17, as well as a juvenile suspect, have been detained since the killing in April.

Having not yet seen the case files — witness statements and forensic evidence included — Maxfield declined to say whether he expected the capital murder charges would be finalized.
