Husband and Wife Killed in Jim Wells County

JIM WELLS COUNTY - Homicide investigators in Jim Wells County are saying very little about the murders of a husband and wife Sunday evening.

Christopher and Marissa Montes were both shot in the face and left for dead on Sunday night. Marissa died at the scene. Her husband died last night at a hospital in Corpus Christi.

His mother told us today that her son was a good son; his wife was a loving mother. The couple just married a few months ago,

"I feel he was taken too young. He's with God now," says Delmita Montes. His mother says he dreamed of becoming a musician.

If you have any information that could help investigators, call the Jim Wells County Sheriff's Department.
