Misdemeanor charges have been filed against two suspects who have been linked to alcohol served at a party which a Frenship student attended before he was killed last year.
18-year-old Gilbert Guerrero, Jr. is accused of making alcohol available to a minor. His aunt, 45-year-old Clarita Campos is accused of purchasing alcohol for a minor. Both have been released from the Lubbock County Detention Center.
17-year-old Conner Mercer was struck by a pickup truck in far Southwest Lubbock. According to LPD reports, he attended the house party and later was run over by the vehicle while he was lying in a roadway.
Test results indicate Mercer had a blood alcohol content almost three times the legal limit for an adult.
According to a TABC agent's report, the suspects told investigators that Guerrero brought bottles of liquor that Campos had purchased to the party that mercer attended. The report states no adults were present at the party.
