News

A 22-year-old woman who was waiting in the car while another man is accused of shooting a man who later died has been sentenced to eight years in prison for her part in the crime.

Tamron Monche Shores entered her plea of guilty to the charge of murder in a Bell County court Monday morning.

She  along with Manuel Antonio Leija, Jr were charged in the October 3, 2014 shooting of 22-year-old Julian Anguiano in a Temple apartment complex parking lot.

Anguiano was found slumped in the driver’s seat of a car with multiple gunshot wounds, including one to the neck.

He was transported to Baylor Scott & White Hospital where he later died.

Court papers stated that earlier Leija had given Shores the keys to his car telling her he was going to commit a robbery.

Leija, who was just 17 at the time of the murder, entered a plea of guilty to the charge of murder back in November and was sentenced to 38 years in prison January 24th.

Shores testified against him during the sentencing portion of his trial.

Under current law, since he was 17 at the time of the offense, he would not be eligible for a capital sentence, either the death penalty or live without parole.

When he entered his plea the cap for his sentence would have been forty years.
