CHEROKEE COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

A 42-year-old Jacksonville woman was shot to death early Saturday morning allegedly by a male friend.

Martha Caselin Ramirez was shot at least twice by Jose Diaz Perez, 48 of Jacksonville, according to the Jacksonville Police Department. Her body was dumped on his farm in a wooded area on County Rd. 4201.

JPD received a 9-1-1 call early Saturday morning from a Perez who told them he had just shot someone. JPD stopped and detained the Perez . He then led Cherokee County Deputies and JPD officers to a farm that he owned on CR 4201 near Jacksonville. Officers found the body of Ms. Ramirez in the woods.

Cherokee County officers believe Perez went the victim's residence on County Rd. 3103 just outside of Jacksonville. They believe Perez and the Ramirez were in his truck when she was shot by him.

Evidence later found at the home of the Perez indicates he went to the Ramirez's home to shoot her.

There was one adult and two children in the Ramirez's home but they were unaware of the shooting.

Perez is charged with murder and is in the Cherokee County Jail. His bond has been set at 1 million dollars.

Ramirez's body has been sent to Southwest Forensic in Dallas.
