Deputies arrest suspect in murder case
The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office has made an arrest in the Dec. 21 murder of a 34-year-old South County woman.
On Feb. 10, detectives assigned to the Major Crimes Unit with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office made an arrest in the murder of Lisa Lynette Whitt-Ulloa, according to a release from the sheriff's office.
The suspect, 31-year-old Luis Eduardo Guzman, was arrested without incident in Brookshire at his place of employment as a welder.
The suspect is currently in the Montgomery County Jail on a charge of capital murder.
At approximately 2:12 a.m. Dec. 21, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call reporting a home invasion on Ginger Trace Drive in the Legions Ranch Subdivision in South Montgomery County.
When deputies arrived they found that one victim had been killed and two others had been injured, according to a statement from the sheriff's office.
The victim, 34-year-old Lisa Lynette Whitt-Ulloa from Georgia, was found dead in her home and her 26-year-old-husband and 18-year-old daughter were transported to a local hospital for treatment.
The 18-year-old victim, also from Georgia, had been visiting the family for the Christmas holidays. Whitt-Ulloa's 9-year-old son was not at home and had been spending the night with nearby relatives.
Major Crimes Detectives assisted by the Texas Rangers and the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office learned that two masked men entered the home through an unlocked door while the family was in the living area and using what could be baseball bats threatened, bound and assaulted the victims.
The 18-year-old victim was able to free herself after the suspects fled and ran to a neighbor's home to call for help. When deputies arrived both the 18-year-old and her step-father were waiting at the neighbor's house.
The victim and her husband had been married approximately 7 months and had only recently moved into the home.
