German Manuel Ibarra
Hopkins County Jail
One of the suspects charged with capital murder in the fatal stabbing of Luis Martin Medina in Sulphur Springs last April has entered into a plea bargain with prosecutors. German Manuel Ibarra pleaded guilty to murder and Aggravated Robbery, and officials sentenced him to life on the murder charge and 20 years in prison on the robbery charge. He will serve the sentences consecutively. They charged Ibarra, two other men, and a woman in Medina’s beating and then burning his body in a car. Two of the other suspects remain in jail, and they released the other on bond.
