El Paso Policeman Beaten To Death To Be Buried At Fort Bliss Cemetary Friday

Oct 9, 2012

An El Paso policeman who died two weeks after he was badly beaten will be honored this week with several ceremonies.

Officer Jonathan Molina suffered a fractured skull and internal head injuries while off-duty Sept. 25 after confronting 17-year-old Juan Antonio Gonzalez and two others who were vandalizing his personal car.

Gonzalez was later arrested and is charged with capital murder and held on a $5 million bond.

The 29-year-old officer, who died Friday, will be honored with a funeral service and burial Friday at the Fort Bliss National Cemetery
