BELTON - Charges that a Belton man killed a woman while driving drunk moved forward Wednesday after a Bell County grand jury indicted him.

Jorge Robles-Gonzales, 37, was charged with intoxicated manslaughter in connection with a May 7 incident outside a bar in Temple.

According to an arrest affidavit, Mary Lou Garcia, 68, was waiting in the parking lot of the Outback Bar & Grill in the 1700 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive for a ride at about 1:13 a.m. when she was hit by a Ford F-150.

When police arrived, they found her on the ground between the truck and an SUV. She was taken to Scott & White Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Two witnesses told police the Ford F-150 had crashed into the parking lot. The driver of the truck, a man later identified as Jorge Robles-Gonzales, left the scene.

Police went to Robles-Gonzales' home. After a short time, he arrived in a car driven by another man.

The driver told police Robles-Gonzales came to his home asking for a ride. Robles-Gonzales appeared drunk, smelled of alcohol and had blood on his face. Robles-Gonzales told the man he had been in a wreck.

Officers noted that Robles-Gonzales appeared off balance. They also detected the odor of alcohol emanating from him. After being arrested, Robles-Gonzales admitted to drinking and driving. He told police he consumed four beers before arriving at the Outback Bar & Grill, where he continued to drink an unknown amount of beer.

Garcia's daughter witnessed the accident. She told police that Robles-Gonzales drove out of the parking lot, spun out on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and drove at a high rate of speed back into the parking lot, where his vehicle crashed.

If convicted, Robles-Gonzales could face up to 20 years in prison.
