Cedar Park, TX (KXAN) — On December 14, a Central Texas man was sentenced to 50 years in prison for murder and 20 years for attempted murder, according to Williamson County filings.
Records showed that 30-year-old José Ivan Aviles Loza of Bastrop pleaded guilty to the 2019 charges on the same day he was convicted.
Loza’s imprisonment began on December 14, and records showed that he had 1,220 days in prison. According to the records, the victim’s impact statement was read out on December 15th.
Past court records say Loza threatened 22-year-old Fernando López Chaparro before he shot him at the junction of the 183A toll road and East Whitestone Boulevard in August 2019. Another person associated with the victim was also injured during the shooting.
Cedar Park police said Vine was taken into custody in Houston on August 5. During the initial investigation, police said that Vine and the victim knew each other and the incident was not a random act of violence.
