The Lubbock County grand jury returned a murder indictment against a man accused in a fatal stabbing.  Joshua Bulls, 35, is charged with killing 32-year-old David Vincent Martinez. 

It began in the 3000 block of 35th Street. Investigators said Martinez ran out of the house after he was stabbed in the neck, then Bulls followed him.

Officers found both men in the 3800 block of 35th Street. Bulls was taken into custody. Martinez died at the hospital. No potential motive has been revealed.

The grand jury also indicted a man for the murder of his wife. Abel Alonzo, 35, is accused of fatally stabbing Denise Alonzo then setting their duplex on fire back in December.  

Police and firefighters found the wife's body in the bedroom of the smoldering home in the 1600 block of 58th Street. Witnesses said the accused killer was outside lying on the ground, bloody and holding a knife.

Alonzo remains jailed on a half million dollars bond.

Also indicted:  24-year-old Shelby Miller, accused of hit and run on a pedestrian. He faces a charge of failure to stop and render aid.

LPD reports 21-year-old Juan Paul Garza Junior was walking in the roadway in the 1300 block of Quaker in November when he was hit.

Garza suffered serious injuries. Officers located and arrested Miller a short time after the collision.

He's now free on bond.
