A Houston man was arrested Wednesday for the Dec. 21 murder of a Spring woman during a home invasion.

A Dec. 22 autopsy determined the victim, 34-year-old Lisa Lynette Whitt-Ulloa, died of “asphyxiation due to linear strangulation.”

Whitt-Ulloa, a Georgia native, was murdered in her home on Ginger Trace in the Legends Ranch subdivision. While no new details were provided with the announcement of Guzman’s arrest, according to information provided by the Sheriff’s Office in December, she was killed by intruders in the presence of her 26-year-old husband and 18-year-old daughter around 2.a.m. They were also injured. The teen, who was visiting from Georgia for Christmas, managed to break free from her restraints and go to a neighbor’s home for help. She and her step-father were waiting there when officers arrived.

MCSO Lt. Dan Norris said two masked men entered the residence through an unlocked door, caught the family by surprise and attacked them. The women and the man were bound and beaten with what were then believed to be baseball bats. Ulloa’s 9-year-old son was spending the night elsewhere. .

Norris originally said robbery was believed to be the motive for the attack, but it was not determined whether anything was taken from the home. It was determined, however, the entire attack took place in the downstairs portion of the home.

Ulloa and her husband were married around 7 months prior to her murder and only lived in the residence a short time.

Additional information will be posted as it becomes available.
