A 17-year-old boy was charged with murder in connection with the fatal shooting a woman who was visiting her son’s gravesite, according to Texas police and local news reports.
The Bell County district attorney’s office charged Christian Lamar Weston on Saturday, five months after the death of Yolanda N’Gaojia.
N’Gaojia, 52, was at a cemetery in Killeen on March 22 when she and another person were shot, NBC affiliate KCEN of Temple reported. N’Gaojia died nearly two hours after the shooting, police said.
The second victim was released at the scene after being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police said in a news release.
Weston was arraigned and is being held without bond. He was also arraigned on an unrelated charge of carrying a weapon without a license; bond was set at $5,000. Attorney information was not available.
