LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – A Houston County grand jury has indicted a Grapeland woman in the death of her husband. Tina Bernard was arrested in early December after law enforcement responded to her 9-1-1 call.

They found her husband, Ernest Bernard, 43, dead from a gun shot wound, lying on their living room floor.

According to the arrest affidavit, Tina Bernard told investigators during questioning that her husband had been agitated all evening, yelling at the family, and that she 'just wanted it to stop'.

The indictment formally charges her with the charge of murder.
