A Dallas County jury has found Nestor Hernandez, 31, guilty of capital murder for the tragic shooting deaths of Jacqueline Pokuaa and Katie Annette Flowers on October 22, 2022, at Methodist Dallas Medical Center. The verdict was announced by Dallas County Criminal District Attorney John Creuzot, who expressed satisfaction with the outcome.
Hernandez, convicted of this heinous crime, has received an automatic sentence of Life in Prison without the possibility of parole.
“At the time this crime occurred, I vowed to see that justice was done, and I am satisfied to say that’s what we’ve accomplished. I say this knowing that justice is no replacement for these two innocent lives lost nor does it repair the trauma inflicted on the staff, officers, and other families at the hospital on that tragic day; however, we have ensured that Mr. Hernandez will die in prison,” stated Dallas County Criminal District Attorney John Creuzot.
The District Attorney expressed gratitude to the jury for diligently following the law and thanked them for their service during this difficult trial. Acknowledgments were also extended to Judge Chika Anyiam, the Methodist Hospital Police and Staff, the Dallas Police Department, and all of Annette and Jacqueline’s loved ones who entrusted the justice system with this case.
Continued appreciation was directed towards the trial team, including ADA George Lewis, ADA Shawnkeedra Houston-Martin, ADA Jesse Allen, Investigator Anthony Winn, and numerous others who played a crucial role in securing this just verdict.
