Stella Michelle Ray:Intimate Partner Homicide

Stella Michelle Ray, 36 was gunned down in cold blood on Wednesday. She was a high school teacher at Caddo Mills High School in Greenville Texas. The mother of 3 was being stalked by her former husband. In the car with her, strapped in their car seats, Stella's children ages 2 and 3. She was on the phone with law enforcement just before she was shot.

He killed Stella, the mother of his children over custody issues. This was a cold blooded and planned out murder. After the shooting , he surrendered to authorities a few hours later. The coward will be in court today. Micah Brown has been charged with first degree murder.

Prayers to the family during this very difficult time.
