According to the Pharr Texas Police Department report, the teenage brothers killed the stepfather for allegedly sexually abusing their 9-year-old sister.

(PHARR, TX – POLICE DEPARTMENT), January 26, 2022.- Two brothers in Texas are reportedly in detention after they beat their stepfather to death.

Alejandro and Christian Trevino, 18 years old, are both accused of severely beating Gabriel Quintanilla, 42, and leaving him to die in a southern Texas field.

Quintanilla was reportedly found by a farmer and had apparent severe blunt force trauma to his head.

A friend of the Trevino brothers, Juan Eduardo Melendez, 18, was also reportedly involved in the fatal beating and has has aslso been charged.

Police say a minor, later identified as a 9-year-old girl, made an outcry about being inappropriately touched by Quintanilla in an RV park.

“When brothers Alejandro and Christian Trevino found out, they became enraged and confronted Gabriel Quintanilla at the residence. A physical fight ensued between the three and the victim Quintanilla left the location on foot,” KRGV News reports Pharr Police Department saying in a news release.

The trio reportedly chased Quintanilla down and again assaulted him, leaving only to fetch a truck and come back, again beating Quintanilla and placing him in the back of the retrieved truck. KRGV News says Quintanilla was beaten with brass knuckles and put into the bed of the truck, then later dumped in the field.

Hidalgo County records show the three teens are charged with multiple crimes and are all being held on at least $1 million bond.

Christian Trevino faces charges of murder, aggravated assault and engaging in organized criminal activity.

Juan Eduardo Melendez faces all the same charges as Christian, with additional charges of assault with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana.

Alejandro Trevino only faces aggravated assault and engaging in organized criminal activity charges, reportedly ducking a murder charge because, Alejandro is not believed to have delivered the final blows, as Christian and Melendez did.

Christian and Alejandro are reportedly half-brothers, sharing a father, and are both half-brothers to the 9-year-old girl.

Quintanilla is the stepfather of both Christian and Alejandro, and also had a warrant for “continuous sexual abuse of a child”, police reported
