46-year-old Elliot Nix, who died in this incident, is now Erick Aguirre facing murder charges. Last Tuesday, he was arrested from Aransas County, north of Corpus Christi, Texas. 

In this case, Aguirre might be imprisoned for his crime if found guilty. His point was shifted to Harris County; on Thursday, he was arraigned. The attorney of Aguirre declined to comment on this issue. 

On April 11, Aguirre and Melanie Castillo went out on a date, according to the charge sheet presented in the court. From their cars, they reached Rodeo Goat, a hamburger joint east of Houston’s business district. 

When they parked their car, a man asked for $20 for each vehicle and said if they showed the bill for the food, they would receive a refund. 

After paying $40, Aguirre took his date inside the Rodeo Goat. While eating at a restaurant, Aguiree finds that Nix needs to be fixed in the restaurant, and he tricks them. 

Aguirre informed his date that he would be right back; after that, he went to his car, got the gun, shot the victim quickly, and returned with his date. When he returned after shooting, he ensured his date that everything was “fine.” He explained that he went only that had only scared the man.

According to the court record, they both are all set at their table, but Aguirre didn’t feel comfortable, and then they left the restaurant and went elsewhere.
