Police have charged the woman with murder in the death of the 23-year-old man of Texas.
Llano County deputies were called to a home in the 200 block of McGee Trail about 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, where they found Jose Mario Hernandez dead inside the house.
Texas Rangers and the State Fire Marshal, were also called to the house to help with the investigation.
46-year-old Kathryn Louise Preston, was subsequently arrested and charged on Wednesday, with first-degree murder. She was booked into the Llano County Jail.
