Three teenagers who killed their stepfather because he abused their 9-year-old sister are asked to be released from prison

Two Texas teenage brothers have been charged with murder for beating their stepfather to death after discovering he had sexually abused their 9-year-old sister.

Three teenagers who killed their stepfather because he abused their 9-year-old sister are asked to be released from prison

A petition for two Hispanic brothers accused of killing their stepfather, whom they believed sexually abused their 9-year-old half-sister, has so far gathered 40,033 signatures on the platform.

Christian Treviño and Alejandro Treviño, both 18, were arrested by the Pharr Police Department on Saturday, Jan.

22, for the brutal murder of 42-year-old Gabriel Quintanilla last Thursday.

Authorities also arrested their friend, Juan Eduardo Melendez, 18, who helped the brothers attack the victim.

The Pharr Police Department said Quintanilla was beaten with American fists and thrown into a pickup truck before the defendants dumped his body in a McAllen field.

Quintanilla suffered head trauma and police believe he was still alive when the brothers and their friend dumped his body.

“We call on the state of Texas to release these teens, who could possibly spend the rest of their lives in prison for protecting their sister,” reads the petition posted on the website.

The three teens are charged with multiple felonies and are being held on bail of at least $1 million.

Pharr Police Chief Andy Harvey revealed during a press conference Tuesday that Quintanilla had a 2019 warrant for his arrest for allegedly sexually abusing another minor.
