HARRIS COUNTY – The family of 71-year-old Martha Medina told KPRC 2 not a day goes by that she’s not on their mind.
“I’m sad. I’m hurt because we spent 42 years together and it was a beautiful life. She was such a sweet person,” Martha’s husband, Evodio Medina, said in Spanish.
Martha was killed almost two weeks ago on Sept. 23. Deputies said the 71-year-old woman was run over and killed after being robbed at a McDonald’s restaurant located at 430 Uvalde.
Andrew Williams, 40, was arrested Tuesday and charged with capital murder. He is currently being held at the Harris County jail.
Williams was out on a $150,000 bond in connection to a previous capital murder charge when Martha was killed.
“It was just a couple of years ago, so it does make us really mad,” said daughter Liliana Medina.
The Medina family told KPRC 2 they believe the justice system failed their mom.
“It could have been avoided if the judges had done their job properly,” said daughter Lourdes Medina.
