PUXICO, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say a southeastern Missouri woman accused of gunning down her husband did so after something told her to “end him.”
Stoddard County investigators say 47-year-old Victoria Isaac of Puxico shot 43-year-old Christopher Isaac six times Tuesday with a .22-caliber pistol as he slept on a couch.
Victoria Isaac is charged with first-degree murder and is jailed without bond.
A probable cause statement by an investigator alleges that after Victoria Isaac was arrested, she said she was “just laying in bed and ‘something’ told her to get up and ‘end him.’”
The investigator added that the woman insisted that she planned to then kill herself, but her son stopped her before she could reload the gun.
Online court records don’t show whether she has an attorney.
