HOUSTON — The 17-year-old accused of shooting his girlfriend 22 times as she walked her dog was released from jail on bond on Wednesday, court records show.
A judge set bail at $250,000 in the case of Frank DeLeon. He's due back in court later Wednesday.
The video above is from previous reporting.
According to police, Diamond Alvarez and DeLeon were in a romantic relationship, but Alvarez had recently learned that DeLeon was romantically involved with someone else.
The two met at a park near Alvarez's home on Jan .11. That's when DeLeon shot Alvarez 22 times, mostly in the back, according to prosecutors.
DeLeon was taken into custody Monday.
Investigators said they want to question at least two more people who they do not believe were involved in the shooting but were seen getting in and out of a dark-colored vehicle that arrived at the scene just minutes after the shooting.
