HOUSTON – Investigators say an off-duty Harris County deputy constable was shot after getting into an argument with a pimp over money following sex with a prostitute.
Capital murder charges have been filed against 31-year-old Lee Eldridge Sonier, the alleged pimp, and 40-year-old Judy Lucille Hambrick, the alleged prostitute.
According to a probable cause affidavit released Friday, Hambrick performed a sex act on 47-year-old Deputy Constable Ronnie Earl Brewer in his car early Tuesday morning. Afterward, Sonier got into an argument with Brewer over money and then shot him.
The affidavit says Sonier and Hambrick might have been planning to rob Brewer.
Police say that after the shooting, Hambrick stole Brewer’s handgun, which was later recovered.
Online court documents show the two suspects remain in custody, and no attorneys are listed.
