Hung Jury in Washington County

By  | 

A Washington County Jury could not reach a verdict in the case against a man accused of murdering a woman and dumping her body on the side of the road.

After six hours of deliberating, the trial against Lee Van Parker ended with a hung jury.

Parker pleaded not guilty to the murder of 34-year-old Sandra Ramos.

The body of the San Antonio woman was found over one year ago along US 290 near Burton.

Investigators believe Ramos was killed and thrown from a moving car.

The case will be retried.
