The fight left another man, Lawrence Jones, with a skull fracture and a brain bleed. He died the next morning. Both Galvan and Vasquez are charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Galvan was known to federal authorities for a recent violation while being supervised on federal probation, following his release in 2018 after serving a 10-year sentence in federal prison, according to a release.
Members of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force initiated a local fugitive investigation and learned that Galvan had fled back to Illinois, where he was initially sentenced by a federal court in 2010.
