South Texas Man Charged with 2012 Fatal Shooting of Wife

A South Texas man has been arrested on a murder charge in the Christmas Eve 2012 fatal shooting of his wife in their San Antonio-area home.

Bexar County court records show 57-year-old Ramiro Campos was indicted Wednesday and arrested, with bond set at $75,000.

A statement Thursday from the sheriff's office says investigators originally thought Campos fatally shot his wife, Virginia, then tried to kill himself. Authorities later determined a relative shot Campos in response to the woman's slaying.

Sheriff's officials say the person who shot Campos has not been indicted. That person's name and further information on the relationship to the victim weren't released.

Online records don't list an attorney to speak for Campos, who recovered from being wounded.
