An FBI agent called 911 on April 19 to report he had shot his estranged wife during an argument and she needed medical assistance. Friday he was indicted by a grand jury and charged with murder.

Police say Arthur Gonzales, an instructor at the FBI National Academy at Quantico, told 911 operators he had shot Julie Serna Gonzales after she attacked him with a knife at the home at 59 Alderwood Drive, Stafford.

Responding deputies found the mother of two boys suffering from gunshot wounds. She died at an area hospital.

Following an investigation by the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office, a Special Stafford County Grand Jury issued two indictments against Gonzales on Friday.

Gonzales, 42, turned himself in to the Sheriff’s Office Friday.

Gonzales also faces one count of the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He’s being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
