HONDO, TX -- A San Antonio woman has been charged with murder after two bodies were found dumped in South Texas.

Medina County jail records show Loribeth K. Martinez was being held Tuesday on $700,000 bond. Sheriff Randy Brown said Monday that investigators believe the victims were killed June 7 at the suspect's apartment.

Martinez surrendered Saturday on a warrant in the death of Traci Lemley. Her burned body was discovered June 8 in a field in Castroville.

The remains of Jeremy Lee Carrico were located June 17 in a container near Robstown.

The sheriff declined to say how both died. Brown says authorities believe the killings involved disputes over drugs, gang issues or Lemley possibly involved with the suspect's boyfriend.

Jail records don't list an attorney for Martinez to speak for her.
