They report when they arrived, Henrietta Brown was sitting on couch with trauma to her chest.

Police arrested the man in the house, 58-year-old Robert Dale Baxter, who they say was Henrietta's live-in boyfriend.

An autopsy is being performed, but lawmen do confirm she was shot.

Robert Baxter is charged with an open count of murder.

    It amazes me that when a "black" man gets on the news for drugs ect. everyone and their mamas wants to comment on it. Yet a "white" man kills a woman and there is only one comment. Doesn't make to much sense if you ask me. Trust and believe if this had been a black man there would be at least 50 comments.... Geezz
