Trevino. "To sum it up-they were caught in the act of trying to dispose of this body."Emilio Gomez, 23, has been since been charged with intoxicated manslaughter and faces up to 20 years in prison.----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­----------------Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
