What horrible news! My wife and I saw the scene up at La Kiva on our way to and from the park yesterday and were hoping it wasn't something this serious.

I didn't know Glenn, but it appears that he was a super nice guy on the "Remembering Glenn Felts" video-

Very sad news. No telling what the outcome will be. with all the different types who go thru that area. And the "characters" who reside in the area.

The accused is pleading self-defense...

The trial of Tony Michael Flint in the death of La Kiva Bar owner Glenn Felts began this week at the Hudspeth County courthouse. In opening statements, defense attorneys conceded that Flint had killed Felts, but said that Flint had acted in self-defense and would testify in the trial.

A former river guide, Flint is charged with first-degree murder in the Feb. 4, 2014, beating death of Felts, a well-loved figure in South Brewster County whose bar was an anchor of the Terlingua community. If convicted, Flint could face a punishment of five to 99 years or life in prison.

Hope someone with the same special "spirit" resurrects it. As anyone who has traveled there knows Terlingua requires something extra. Especially a place like the La Kiva.
