BROWNSVILLE - A Mexican Mafia Member has been found not guilty of the Capital Murder of a Harlingen Woman.
Wilfredo Padilla was charged with Capital Murder but a Cameron County jury acquitted Padilla of the charge instead
of convicting him of a lesser charge of murder and engaging in organized criminal activity. Padilla was accused of
killing Joann Chavez in 2003. Padilla will not be facing death penalty but is facing life in prison.
