Convicted child sex offender kills wife in Baytown

El Ray Gonzalez, 39, is facing murder charges in relation to the death of his estranged wife, Elva Gonzalez, 41, on the front lawn of her house in Baytown, Texas last Sunday, October 30.

According to preliminary investigations, the Gonzalez’ children – aged 16 and 21 – were able to call the police when El Ray first arrived in Elva’s house. When police arrived at the house in the 1900 block of Mississippi Street, El Ray was walking Elva outside the house at gunpoint. He then shot her several times before receiving a wounding shot from a police officer. El Ray received medical attention for his wound and was immediately arrested. The victim’s children were not hurt during the incident.

Supposedly, Elva filed a restraining order against her estranged husband days before the shooting happened, but the Baytown Police Department could not confirm this report. Department of Public Safety records show that El Ray received a conviction for the sexual assault of a three-year-old back in 2005.
