Second Suspect Charged in Connection with 2020 Houston Murder CaseSource: City of Houston

A second man is now facing charges in a months-old murder case, as the Houston Police Department has tightened the noose around a suspect in connection to a fatal shooting from last year. Orlando Antonio Colindres-Cueva, 21, has been hit with charges of murder for his alleged involvement in the October slaying of Juan Cruz Arriaza, officials confirmed. The ordeal took place in the early morning shadows at 103 Goodson Drive.

Jose Revolorio-Good, 24, was the first to be slapped with charges in the deadly encounter. Now, with the arrest of Colindres-Cueva, the case against both men linked to the slaying is taking shape. According to a news release, Revolorio-Good was already cooling his heels in custody on unrelated charges when he was charged for his alleged part in the death of Arriaza.

It was approximately 2:40 a.m. on that fateful October 29 when police stumbled upon a scene of tragedy. The grim discovery unfolded in an apartment complex parking lot, where officers found Arriaza unresponsive and alone, his life extinguished by at least one gunshot. Paramedics who rushed in soon after could only declare what was evident: Arriaza had departed from this violent threshold.

Sgt. N. Miyako and Detective C. Bowling with the HPD Homicide Division spearheaded the investigation. Their determined probe carved a path to Revolorio-Good and, eventually, to Colindres-Cueva. The Harris County District Attorney's Office, after being presented with the findings, charged Colindres-Cueva in the 182nd State District Court. Revolorio-Good received his charge in the 488th State District Court a bit earlier.

Houston Police continued their pursuit of justice. Both suspects are now facing the weight of the law as the case lurches forward.
