A man charged with capital murder in the 2016 Thanksgiving Day shooting of a Calallen man was sentenced to 45 years in prison Monday afternoon.

Judge Missy Medary asked Elishah Trevino in court,"To the charge of murder how do you plead? Are you guilty or not guilty?"

Elishah Trevino responded,"Guilty your honor."

Elishah Trevino admitted he shot and killed 44-year-old Homer Muguerza.
As part of a plea deal, he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of murder and was given that 45-year sentence.

Trevino had little to say during his sentencing.

That wasn’t the case for the victim’s family.

The victim’s brother said to Trevino,"Everything changed that day, Thanksgiving is never going be the same, my nephew’s birthday is never going be the same, a lot of things are never going to be the same, because of what you did."

"Remember my face when you go to sleep at night, cause you’re going to hell," the victim’s brother continued.

The victim’s two sisters also addressed Trevino during his sentencing. The family members asked that they not be shown on camera.
