WACO, Texas (KWTX) A woman who grew up in Waco has been murdered in North Carolina, family members confirmed Friday.

Dena Luedke, 30, was killed in a domestic dispute with her boyfriend Thursday night outside their home in Cameron, N.C.

The Harnett County, N.C. Sheriff’s Office is investigating.

Calls to the sheriff’s office weren’t immediately returned.

WNCN CBS 17 in Raleigh, N.C., reported that Luedke’s boyfriend, Gregory Cole, 30, was taken into custody to be charged with murder.

According the victim’s aunt, Luedke’s mother was en route to North Carolina to pick up her three grandchildren and “hopefully bring her home to be laid to rest.”

Luedke attended Cedar Ridge Elementary School and then a small church school before moving to North Carolina where she went to high school, her aunt says.
