CALDWELL COUNTY, Texas – A woman is now in custody after voluntarily admitting to sheriff’s deputies that she murdered her 82-year-old husband, according to the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office.
Dena Katharine Harris Storch is charged in the death of Lothar Storch.
Authorities were called on Sept. 1 to a home in the 600 block of Boulder Lane, in the Tilmon area, for a report of a deceased man.
When deputies arrived, they found Lothar Storch dead from multiple gunshot wounds, according to a release.
Authorities launched a homicide investigation and executed a search warrant of the home.
On Saturday, the CCSO said Dena had been booked for her husband’s death, after deputies were “able to obtain a voluntary confession.”
There was no evidence of other people involved, according to officials, and the investigation continues.
