Everyone's High School prom is supposed to be a joyous time to remember, but for one Houston couple back in 2014, it ended in tragedy.
On May 17, 2014, a day after MacArthur High School's prom, Eddie Herrera allegedly woke up in his hotel room and found his girlfriend Jackie Gomez dead in the bed next to him.
Eddie called his mom, Melissa Ann Martinez, who is also awaiting trial for her involvement in the teenager's death, before calling 9-1-1 two hours later.
After eight months, Herrera was arrested for his role in Jackie's death and has been on trial since.
On Wednesday, Eddie was officially charged with aggravated assault resulting in Gomez's death and was sentenced to 25 years after admitting during the trial
