NC Police Charge Woman With Killing Her Husband

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Police say a North Carolina woman has been charged with murder in connection with the shooting death of her husband.

Police in the small town of Garner just south of Raleigh told multiple media outlets that 48-year-old Abundio Gonzalez was killed early Saturday morning with a single gunshot to the chest.

Police say Ruby Ashworth Gonzalez called 911 to report that she had shot her husband. A jail officer said Saturday that Ruby Gonzalez was on suicide watch at the Wake County Detention Center. She did not have an attorney and is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday -- her 60th birthday.

Investigators say the shooting happened during an argument about another woman. The couple had been living in a recreational vehicle in various locations in the Raleigh area.

    Anon... as this story illustrates, you CAN shoot them. It's just that there are consequences.. even when justified.

    At least she "manned up" and admitted it. She has more scruples than most men....or less sense.

    Will be interesting to see what the judge sets her bond.
