HOUSTON, TEXAS — A suspect has been identified in the shooting death of a woman who was killed while riding in an SUV with her husband last week.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said in a tweet that Tekoney Blackledge is wanted on a charge of murder in the July 16th slaying of 62-year-old Saron James.

Investigators said James and her husband were traveling down old greenhouse road in northwest harris county when she was hit in the head by a bullet.

James' husband said he and his wife were driving home from a doctor's appointment in Katy. He heard what he thought was an explosion and saw shattered glass.

He said that when he turned to talk to his wife, she was slumped over.

Witnesses reported seeing a white Audi SUV leaving the scene.
