Noah Herrera has been found guilty of the capital murder of little David Tijerina on August 31, 2009. Little David, age 3 at the time.He had been beating the child for two days prior to MCHD transporting the baby to St. Luke’s in the Woodlands where he was pronounced dead.

The jury returned the verdict just after 3:30p.m. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole. On his charge of injury to a child which could have resulted in a sentence of up to 99 years an agreement was made with the state and he was sentenced by Judge Cara Wood to forty years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice on that charge.

His attorneys plan to appeal his life sentence.

Two others charged in the case Christina Tijerina,, his mother in law and his wife Crystal Tijerina  will face the court at a later date.

  1. I still can’t see why, with such a crime, and someone we decide is to dangerous to ever walk the streets again, that we decide to lock them up for life, rather than the death penalty. I personally would rather be put down than spend the rest of my life in prison. I guess that could be considered part of the punishment though. Knowing there’s never any hope for you.

  2. This story is so tragic. However, the little boy is now in Heaven with his mother, and no longer has to suffer living with such awful people. May he rest in peace.

  3. Sentence was life in prision, Should of been death… that was what he gave little David. As for the other two still to stand trial…They deserve life in prision for letting something like this happen.
