    NM - Stephanie Houston, 27, Belen, February 2000 - accident or murder?

    My daughter, Stephanie Houston, 27, died on February 27, 2000, in Belen, NM, after being run over by her boyfriend, Patrick Murillo. The State Police refused to investigate Stephanie's death as anything other than an accident, despite strong evidence that she was killed deliberately by a jealous lover who thought she was on her way to meet another man.

    A Soccoro man charged with vehicular homicide was acquitted Wednesday in a case initially deemed an accidental death but reopened at the urging of the victim's family.

    Patrick Murillo, 42, was found not guilty of vehicular homicide by reckless driving in the February 2000 death of Stephanie Houston. The woman died after she was hit by a pickup driven by Murillo, her boyfriend, outside a Belen roadhouse...

    Houston, a 28-year-old mother of one and convenience store manager from Soccoro, was struck by the truck in front of the Red Carpet Lounge on N.M. 314. Murillo, described as a plumber and part-time musician and married with children, had been having an affair with Houston. Murillo's band had played at the lounge that night. Murillo said Houston danced with a male acquaintance of hers to make him jealous. They argued later outside the club.
