Christopher Kines: Sentenced to 50 years in prison for murder, 20 years for tampering with evidence

Having been convicted by a Wilson County jury, defendant Christopher Kines was sentenced by the Hon. Lynn Ellison to fifty years in prison for the brutal murder of Jessica Edens of San Antonio, and twenty years for tampering with evidence. We are thankful for the verdict of the jury, the quick work by the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, the Texas Rangers, and San Antonio Police Department, who were able to make an identification of Jessica’s remains, apprehend her assailants, and help bring them to justice. Our hearts and thoughts are with the Eden Family, and we hope this sentence brings them some sense of peace.
