FRANKLIN COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -
A Hopkins County man was sentenced to life in prison plus ten years on Friday for the January 2013 murder of 37-year-old Juvenal Gonzales of Mt. Pleasant.
A grand jury found Clint Weldon Wilson, 32, of Sulphur Springs guilty of murder and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
Police responded to a residence on Farm to Market 3357 in southern Franklin County just before noon on January 19. Gonzales had gone to the residence to pick up his children for visitation, when a verbal argument ensued between Gonzales and the mother of his children. At a later time during the dispute, Wilson entered the room and fired multiple shots. The Sheriff's office did include in the press release, "We understand that at the time of the shooting no children were present in the residence."
Gonzales was transported to East Texas Medical Center in Mount Vernon where he was pronounced dead.
