A man in his early twenties was pronounced dead at the scene and the female homeowner was detained when authorities arrived.


“It’s a very tragic situation,” says Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. “Our condolences go out to the family and all impacted by this.”


According to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, four adults were in the home at the time of the altercation. There was a married couple who owned the home, their grown daughter, and a grown nephew.


Authorities reported that the victim was the husband’s nephew who recently graduated from college. It was reported that he returned to the home under the belief that he would live there.


There was a disagreement that led to the female homeowner taking a pistol. At some point in the argument she fired it at the nephew and killed him.


Homeowner Charged with Murder

The investigation is still ongoing, but after working overnight authorities have now arrested and formally charged homeowner Mei Huang Wolfe (48) with murder. Wolfe’s bond was set at $100,000 by a judge. If she makes bond, she would have to surrender her passport and stay within Texas. She also would not be allowed to have any firearms or weapons.

UPDATE: Wolfe is the wife of Deputy Justice of the Peace Judge Bob Wolfe, who serves in Harris County Precinct 5, Place 2.


“We’ve seen a lot of family violence happening lately,” says Sheriff Gonzalez. “There’s been a lot between husbands and wives, but it can extend to other family members as it did here.”


Sheriff Gonzalez addressed that this is a newer community full of nice homes and that “no place is free of violence.”


He stressed that if anyone may have information on the situation to call Harris County Sheriff’s Office at 713-221-6000.
