Lauren Bump's Killer Arrested

Arrest made in New Year's Eve Bump murder

SAN ANTONIO — A suspect in the stabbing death of Lauren Bump was arrested Saturday at O.P. Schnabel Park, where Bump's body was discovered on New Year's Eve.
Christian Ivan Bautista, 29, was charged early Saturday with the murder of the 24-year-old university student, authorities said.
Bump was found stabbed to death on a trail at the Northwest Side park at about 5:39 p.m. on Dec. 31.

Bautista's roommate was also questioned. He said he gave Bautista a military-style knife as a Christmas gift. He last saw the knife Dec. 30 when Bautista had it tucked in his waistband, the report states.
When the roommate asked about the knife New Year's day, he said Bautista said, “I stuck that (expletive). I cut her up real nice.” Bautista allegedly told his roommate he disposed of the knife.
Bautista was also arrested in 2007 for aggravated robbery and two counts of possession of marijuana. He later pleaded no contest to the charges.

From Texas Penal Code: 
Sec. 29.03. AGGRAVATED ROBBERY. (a) A person commits an offense if he commits robbery as defined in Section 29.02, and he:
(1) causes serious bodily injury to another;
(2) uses or exhibits a deadly weapon; or
(3) causes bodily injury to another person or threatens or places another person in fear of imminent bodily injury or death, if the other person is:
(A) 65 years of age or older; or
(B) a disabled person.
(b) An offense under this section is a felony of the first degree.
The penalty range for a first degree felony is 5-99 or life. For
aggravated assault, he would have to do at least 30 years. But less than six years after his arrest in 2007, he was loose on the streets to murder this beaut-iful young woman.
