Around 2 a.m. on Sept. 5, the two got into an argument in a parking lot in the San Antonio, Texas, area, according to KSAT. Pesqueda took off and walked away. That is when she was hit from behind by a vehicle driven by Estrada.

“I asked him what occurred prior to what led up to the argument and he kept saying the words ‘well, you know what happens, you know what happens,’” Police Officer Stephen Ramos testified during the trial, according to KSAT.

Police found blood and damage on Estrada’s truck, and he was arrested. During questioning, Estrada denied involvement in her death, then claimed it was an accident, according to the report.

Family members started a GoFundMe fundraising campaign after the victim’s death.

“We are all going through the loss of losing such a beautiful soul,” the page read. “This was a person who lit up the room like a firecracker and her tragic death came way too soon. We are asking for any donations you can share to help lay her to rest so she can spread her angel wings and fly high with our mom and dad by her side.”
