2/21/2017 - Grand Jury Indicts Man for Two Separate Capital Murders

San Antonio, Texas, February 21, 2017: Today, a Bexar County Grand Jury indicted Jose Baldomero Flores III, age 36, for two separate Capital Murders and one count of Arson of a Habitation.

Flores is alleged to have committed the murder of Esmeralda Herrera on March 2, 2011. The victim was found murdered inside her apartment in the 100 block of General Ent Court. Additionally, the defendant is accused of setting her apartment on fire. The defendant was arrested in 2011 for the murder of Herrera. In May 2011, the case was rejected for further investigation. In 2015, the case was re-opened by the current District Attorney’s administration. The defendant is also accused of committing the murder of Heather Willms on February 21, 2005. Willms was found murdered in her apartment located in the 5600 block of Grissom Road in Leon Valley. Both murders are alleged to have been committed in the course of sexually assaulting the respective women, which elevates the murders to capital murders.

In late November, Flores was arrested as a result of a joint investigation between the District Attorney’s Office, the San Antonio Police Department, the Leon Valley Police Department and the Texas Rangers. The defendant is awaiting trial for the cases out of the 437th District Court.

Capital Murder is a felony, punishable by death or life in prison without the possibility of parole. Arson is a first degree felony, punishable by 5-99 years or life in prison and up to a $10,000.00 fine.
