A Texas judge recently sentenced Enderia Flowers, 26, to 18 years in prison for the killing of Isaiah Roper in 2018. She pleaded guilty to murder in January 2020, but there were delays in her sentencing, according to the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office.

Co-defendant James Johnson was previously sentenced to 35 years in prison for murder.

Flowers and her new beau, Johnson, went to Roper’s family home on Sept. 5, 2018, according to the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office. Roper had dated Flower but he moved out of her apartment.

Witnesses said Flowers and Roper argued in front of the home, until Roper walked away drawing the suspects away from the residence, according to KSAT.

Flowers was arrested in the following days, ironically, days in front of a magistrate’s office.

Sentencing was delayed during the pandemic as Flowers challenged her competency, according to prosecutors. But she was found competent by a jury this month and then sentenced.

“After a delay by this defendant of more than two years, I am glad the Roper family finally has some closure and justice in this case,” said Bexar County District Attorney Joe Gonzales.
