Police arrested 17-year-old Bryant Matthew Hilario Wednesday afternoon and arrested 18-year-old Christopher Jay Solis Thursday morning. Both are charged with the murder of Iglesias.

Big Spring police officers and Big Spring Fire/EMS were sent to a Shell parking lot on the evening of May 4. The first responders found a man unresponsive in the parking lot with laceration to the chest. The man was identified as 25-year-old Iglesias, and while live-saving measures were taken, he ultimately died because of the injuries.

Investigators say Iglesias was inside a small, red vehicle when a fight broke out. Iglesias fell from the car and the car drove away. An autopsy later determined Iglesias died from a stab wound.

On May 5, police officers arrested 19-year-old Marcus Melendez for the murder.
