The Denton County grand jury indicted former Denton Police Detective Robert "Bobby" Lozano today for murder in connection with the 2002 shooting death of his wife, Virginia "Viki" Lozano.

Bobby Lozano was indicted in December 2002 for murder in the case, but Bruce Isaacks, who was district attorney at the time, dropped the indictment in 2004, saying the Tarrant County medical examiner had changed his mind about his finding in the case and believed that Viki Lozano committed suicide.

A Sept. 7 Denton Record-Chronicle story detailed the police files in the case obtained through the Texas Open Records Act and quoted pathologist Gary Sisler saying he never changed his mind, never believed Viki Lozano committed suicide and was "flabbergasted" when he read that he had.

The story also included statements from five women who told police that Mr. Lozano had affairs with them and told them he couldn't leave his wife because of her family's wealth.

The investigation determined that Mr. Lozano's girlfriend at the time was pressuring him to leave his wife and that he had missed a deadline imposed by the girlfriend.

After the story ran, District Attorney Paul Johnson reopened the case and took it to the grand jury today.
