Man charged with murder in Kerr County

A Kerr County man, 36-year-old Eric Daniel Auld,  was charged with the murder of a San Antonio woman Saturday.

“On Nov. 2, 2016, the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office started an investigation into a missing persons report of Magan King, a 26-year-old female from San Antonio,” Kerr County Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer said. “The investigation led officers to the Auld Ranch in West Kerr County. This was the last place Magan was seen.”

According to the Hill Country Community Journal, Hierholzer said based on the information received during the investigation, he was able to obtain a probable cause warrant that allowed deputies to search the 5,600-acre ranch.

“During the search, the vehicle that the victim was last seen in was located in a remote location on the ranch, loaded on a trailer,” Heirholzer said.

Other evidence was discovered at the scene, but details on the items were not given.

Auld remains in the Kerr County Jail on a bond set at $500,000.
