Corpus Christi man arrested after shooting and killing wife in front of their son
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — A Corpus Christi man is in jail after shooting and killing his 28 year-old wife.
According to police, one of Krystal's Perales children witnessed the shooting when her common law husband, Jessie Perales broke into her Laguna Shore home Sunday night, pointed a gun at her.
Neighbors say Jesse chased Krystal outside where he shot her, right in front of their son, by the time police showed up Jesse was gone.
Officers eventually were able to find and arrest him Monday morning and when he was asked about his children and their mother he stated, "I just hope my kids grow up good, man, **** their mom."
Perales is currently in the Nueces County jail and his bond has been set at $1 million dollars.
