Tioga man jailed for wife's murder

TIOGA, Tex. (KXII) - A man is behind bars for murder after deputies found a woman dead at her Tioga home early Wednesday morning.

Police arrested Sebastian Ramon and charged him with shooting his wife, 46-year-old Maria Ortiz.

Both lived in a rural area on Airport Drive in Tioga.

The couple has four kids - one a teenager and the other three young adults who live with them.

Deputies are still trying to figure out what led up to the murder, but neighbors we spoke with say the news is horrifying.

"You live in the county and don't think anything horrible like this could happen around here, so kinda scary," one told us. "My husband called me and I'm locking doors, which I never do usually."

Ramone is being held at the Grayson County Jail on a $500,000 bond.

Ortiz's body was sent to a medical examiner's office in Dallas.
