A 41-year-old Amarillo man has been indicted for a murder that took place in Southeast Amarillo in April.

According to court documents, Christopher Bernardino Preciado has been indicted on Wednesday, Sept. 13, for the murder of 50-year-old Dalia Jo Soria.

Soria's was found inside the home at 1212 S.E. 7th Ave. on the night of April 3. When officers found her, she had an "obvious injury to a portion of her upper body." She was taken to the hospital where she later died.

Court documents say that Preciado shot Soria.

Preciado's indictment comes with two enhancements; one for a felony offense of Failure to Stop and Render Aid and another for Possession of a Stolen Vehicle.

Preciado was arrested in October 2016 after allegedly stealing a vehicle and fleeing from police, causing a pursuit. He was also hospitalized with life-threatening injuries in 2011 after being shot in the chest during an argument in North Amarillo.
