Edgar Arturo Sazo plead guilty this week to murder in the 435th District Court with Judge Michael Seiler presiding. The jury sentenced him to 30 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and a $10,000 fine. His co-defendant Edson H. Olvera will go on trial sometime in December.
Edgar Arturo Sazo, 19, and 20-year-old Edson H. Olvera-Garza, both of Spring, stand accused in the stabbing death of 17-year-old Eugene Posana Villaruel, whose body was discovered by a jogger in Ascot Farms near Magnolia on a Sunday morning on Nov. 2, 2008. He had been stabbed over 73 times to his body, over two dozen were to his neck with the remaining wounds to his torso, legs and arms. One of those to his arm penetrated the chest cavity, according to the medical examiner Dr. Patty Moore.
An alert Harris County Deputy was the one who contacted Montgomery County after he had heard of the murder and was dispatched that Sunday night for a missing person report.
Sazo who confessed to the murder when he was arrested had been upset about the relationship Villaruel was having with his 14 year-old sister who is now 16. She had confided in him that she and Villaruel had an intimate relationship.
Both were arrested the following day at their apartment complex off FM 1960 and Cornerstone Village.
All three had been friends and planned to go into the military after their graduation from Westfield High School.
