Wife of Slain Rancher Robert Krenz Hit by Car

D.S. Woodfill, Arizona Republic (Phoenix), September 26, 2010

The widow of slain border rancher Robert Krentz has multiple injuries after police say a drunk driver struck her while she crossed the street outside her Douglas church

Marcus Gonzalez, a Douglas Police Department spokesman, said Ramon Saucedo, 66, struck Sue Krentz and Shirley Gregory as they crossed the street about 6 p.m. Saturday outside St. Luke’s Catholic Church, 1211 E. 15th St.

Police booked him into jail on suspicion of DUI, endangerment and aggravated assault, Gonzalez said.

Sue Krentz was married to Robert Krentz, a 58-year-old rancher who was found shot to death on March 27 near Douglas. There were no immediate suspects, but authorities believed he had been shot by an illegal immigrant. The slaying became a national news story and increased furor over border violence.
