BLOOMINGTON (November 29, 2013) Janiemarie Perez Clay, 22, was jailed Friday in Victoria, charged with murder in the Thanksgiving Day shooting death of her teenage brother, who was killed as the two evidently struggled over a handgun.
Ricardo Rico Deleon, 17, died at the scene of the shooting early Thursday at a home in Bloomington, 10 miles southeast of Victoria.
An autopsy was ordered.
Clay was jailed Friday in lieu of $75,000 bond.
Sandra Deleon Ramirez says her two children were playing with the gun.
She said she told her son to put the weapon away and says she thinks her daughter was trying to take the gun when it accidentally fired.
