Noe Aranda is charged with murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Aranda, his girlfriend Yadira Reynosa, and her friend Cristina Huerta were all inside a Dodge Magnum last week on the Katy Freeway. Reynosa told police Aranda became paranoid after taking some cocaine and that he shot Huerta multiple times and the last thing she said was "tell my kids I love them."
Then Aranda allegedly demanded Reynosa speed faster, at which point he shot Reynosa twice. She told police she slammed on the brakes and jumped out of the vehicle, not knowing whether Huerta was alive or dead.
That's when Aranda took over the wheel and a witness told police he pushed Huerta's body out of the car. Multiple vehicles hit the 22-year-old victim's body.
Aranda remains at large. The Dodge was recovered the day of the incident.
Aranda, 32, is also the suspect in a high-speed chase from earlier this year. According to police, he kicked his pregnant wife out of the car then led officers on a chase with his four children in the backseat.
He was charged with assaulting a family member, endangering a child and evading arrest in that case.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of suspect Noe Aranda is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
