CLEBURNE, TX (AP) — A North Texas man has been charged in the death of his 87-year-old wife whose body was found in their Cleburne home.

A judge on Tuesday set bond at $1 million for 83-year-old Samuel Alfred Ball. Officials with the Johnson County jail on Wednesday declined to release any information on Ball, who was arrested on a murder count.

Sheriff Bob Alford says Ball has been charged in the death of his wife, Betty.

Cleburne police on Monday received a call from another individual about a possible death at the Ball home. An affidavit says an officer who went to the residence found the woman’s body wrapped in a blanket.

A medical examiner Wednesday did not immediately provide information on a cause of death.

Police declined to release a possible motive.
