The woman arrested and jailed Monday on a murder charge is identified as 53-year-old Katherine K. Kuehner.

Listed at 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds, Kuehner's jail book-in photo shows her with a badly blackened left eye. No bond was set on the charge as of early Tuesday morning.

Kuehner was taken into custody by Parker County Sheriff’s Office Monday evening after a man was found dead at a home in the 3000 block of Dusk Drive near Peaster, northwest of Weatherford. Kuehner listed the Dusk Drive residence as her home.

The incident was reported around 3:15 p.m. Monday, according to the sheriff’s office. 

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler, the 52-year-old man found dead appeared to have been shot, though investigators were awaiting the autopsy results from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office regarding the manner of death. The victim's name has not yet been made public.
