A mother of three who was reportedly killed Friday night in French Camp by her boyfriend has been identified as Gloria Castro.
“She was a loving mother,” said the victim’s uncle Candido Montes.
Castro’s boyfriend Juan Valdez, 37, was charged with murder and remains in San Joaquin County Jail.
Deputies say they were first called to the home on S. Janet Road regarding a domestic disturbance. Neighbors then called to report gunfire.
Officers discovered Castro shot in the home she shared with Valdez and their kids.
FOX40 has learned Valdez was charged and convicted of murder at the age of 13. Archive newspaper articles say Valdez and another teen killed the father of an ex-girlfriend.
At the time, a family member of Valdez told reporters that the ex-girlfriend was the mastermind of the murder.
When contacted Saturday, the Valdez family declined comment.
