On Thursday, Uriel Leon pleaded not guilty to the charges of slaying and child abuse he’s currently facing in San Diego County.
Authorities imagine Leon slaughtered Melissa Contreras , the mother of his children, who found strangled to extinction on Monday.
As lawyers went over details of the unfortunate contest, the young man burst into snaps. Deputy District Attorney Ben Barlow territory it all was downed after Contreras drooped off her two boys at Leon’s parent’s house before taking off for production. The San Diego Union-Tribute reports that Leon and Contreras had two children, and Contreras has three kids total.
Oceanside police Detective Rick Favela says when the 22 -year-old came back after her displacement, the estranged duo got into a fight over the allegations of adultery. One of Melissa’s pals even territory the two were no longer together and Contreras was “finally joyous without( Leon) and he didn’t like that.”
Surveillance cameras at the residency caught what happened right before and after the alleged murder.
The footage apparently demonstrates Miz Contreras plucking up to the palace around 5:30 p.m. EST and Leon walking out to the vehicle with one of their young children. The toddler then climbs into the back seat, before what appears to be an altercation between parents breaks out.
Shortly after, Uriel can be seen clambering into the back seat behind the driver’s sit. After some time, a dawn in the car comes on and Contreras is seen in the fare seat with Leon in the driver’s accommodate. The 24 -year-old man then drives the car away from the residency and is later experienced treading back to the house with his son.
The Deputy DA went on to tell reporters 😛 TAGEND
“The two-year-old was in the car the entire season and once the defendant positioned himself behind the victim, we feel, he strangled her, killing her at that point.”
It wasn’t until 8: 41 p.m. EST that a neighbor considered a woman’s mas face down inside the car at which point they called the cops.
Currently Leon is being held on$ 2 million bail as the adjudicator wants to send a meaning about the severity of domestic corruption cases.
If Uriel is convicted, he would be facing a sentence of 25 years to life in prison.
While the Oceanside Police Sleuths from the Crimes of Violence Unit is currently investigating, the video footage is pretty damning to us.
