Three Texas Brothers were accused of beating their stepfather to death for sexually abusing their 9-year-old sister.

Detectives have arrested 18-year-old Alejandro Trevino, 17-year-old Christian Trevino, and 18-year-old Juan Eduardo Melendez in connection with the death of 42-year-old Gabriel Quintanilla, whose body was found in a field in McAllen on Thursday, Jan. 20.

Pharr police on Sunday released more details regarding the arrest of three teens accused of severely beating a man and dumping his body in a field in McAllen.
Detectives have arrested 18-year-old Alejandro Trevino, 17-year-old Christian Trevino and 18-year-old Juan Eduardo Melendez in connection with the death of 42-year-old Gabriel Quintanilla, whose body was found in a field in McAllen on Thursday, Jan. 20.
Police say a minor made an outcry about being inappropriately touched by Quintanilla at an RV park located on the 1200 block of E. Moore.
“When brothers Alexandro and Christian Trevino found out, they became enraged and confronted Gabriel Quintanilla at the residence. A physical fight ensued between the three and the victim Quintanilla left the location on foot,” according to a news release from the Pharr Police Department.
Police say Christian Trevino chased Quintanilla to an apartment complex down the road, where a second assault occurred involving Alexandro Trevino and the driver of a red Dodge Charger, identified as Juan Eduardo Melendez.
The three suspects then left the location, changed vehicles and drove back, where they found Quintanilla walking alone and injured, according to Pharr police.
