A Galveston County jury Friday convicted a 23-year-old man of murder in connection to a 2021 bar beating death of a sex offender, according to court records.
Taylor Christopher Requenes, 23, of Texas City, is set to return to court on Monday for sentencing.
Requenes is one of five accused of beating Danny Sanders, 65, a registered sex offender, to death outside a bar.
Just after midnight on May 22, 2021, five men attacked Sanders outside a saloon and dance hall at 3317 Loop 197 in Texas City, police said.
As Sanders attempted to leave the bar, five men attacked and beat him to death, police allege.
Sanders suffered severe face and head injuries from being punched, kicked and stomped during an attack that lasted more than a minute, according to police records.
Ashton Coleman, 22, Christopher Gomez, 32, Dayton Booker, 22, and Antonio Figueroa, 39, all of Texas City, also are charged with murder in connection to Sanders’ death, according to court records.
