Grayson County grand jurors indicted a Tioga man Wednesday on a murder charge in the death of his wife.
The indictment is a formal charge and not an indication of guilt.
Sebastian Roman, 43, was indicted on a murder charge in the death of his wife Maria Ortiz, 46, at a home in the 3600 block of Airport Road in Tioga in June.
“Grayson County deputies arrived to find a deceased female in the residence with an apparent gunshot wound,” Lt. Heath Wester with the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office told the Herald Democrat at the time of the arrest.
Wester said four other family members were home at the time of the incident, including a teenager and three young adults. Wester said several of the family members were brought to the sheriff’s office for questioning where they told investigators that law enforcement had previously responded to the residence on multiple occasions.
He said those conversations led investigators to arrest Roman on an investigative charge of murder.
Grayson County court records show that Roman is currently being held on an ICE detainer in addition to the murder charge. His bond has been set at $500,000.
