This morning, a Bexar County Judge sentenced a woman to prison for her role in the murder of her boyfriend.
Enederia Flowers, 26, pled guilty to a murder charge in January 2020. Flowers was accused of going to Isaiah Roper’s family’s home in the middle of the night on September 5, 2018, with James Johnson after Roper had moved out of her apartment. Flowers got into an altercation with Roper and his family and eventually pulled out a knife. That weapon was wrestled away from Flowers, who continued to argue with Roper. Flowers then yelled to Johnson to shoot Roper. Roper died in front of his family members. Roper was 24.
Sentencing for Flowers was delayed during the pandemic after her competency was challenged. Flowers was found competent by a jury this month. Flowers appeared before 187th District Court Judge Stephanie Boyd and was sentenced to 18 years in prison.
“After a delay by this defendant of more than two years, I am glad the Roper family finally has some closure and justice in this case,” said Bexar County District Attorney Joe Gonzales.
Johnson, the gunman in the shooting, is currently serving a 35-year prison sentence for the murder.
Assistant District Attorney Ryan Groomer of the Criminal Trial Division prosecuted this case. It was investigated by the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.
