BLUE, Texas (KBTX) - One person is being charged with murder after a man’s body was found in the middle of a Lee County road.

Jennifer Redden Kramer, 41, of Blue, was charged with murder. On March 27, just before midnight, Emergency Medical Services responded to a call of a man laying on County Road 306, near the Blue community. When they got there, authorities said the man was dead and had multiple stab wounds to the chest.

The victim was later identified by fingerprints as Christopher Michael Gonzales, 32, according to investigators. After identifying Gonzales, Sgt. Investigator Vance Weltner and Texas Ranger Brent Barina were able to identify and interview Kramer that same day.
