Raul Najera, 25, was arrested Wednesday in north Houston in connection with the death of Ray Jasso.
He is now facing murder charges.
According to investigators, Najera was driving the white Chevy Suburban that hit and killed Ray Jasso while his two children watched.
Montgomery County investigators said up to 100 people were at the party when some uninvited men started a fight. As those men left, witnesses said they hit Jasso.
