Latest on the Meza investigation

Early August, a grand jury officially indicted Raul Meza on charges of murder, capital murder and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle related to the deaths of Gloria Lofton and Jesse Fraga.

Meza faces capital murder and murder charges in Lofton’s case. According to indictment documents for Lofton’s case, the grand jury ruled that Meza strangled Lofton “in the course of committing and attempting to commit the offense of aggravated sexual assault.”
