A 70-year-old woman has been arrested after a man -- identified Tuesday as her husband --was found dead with an apparent gunshot wound at their El Dorado County home.
Colleen Ann Harris was booked Monday into El Dorado County Jail on suspicion of murder.
Deputies on Sunday responded to the 3200 block of Wilderness Court in the Hanks Exchange area south of Placerville after receiving a report of a homicide. Upon arriving, they met with Harris, then entered the home and found a man who appeared to have sustained a fatal gunshot wound, according to a Sheriff's Department news release.
He was identified by the sheriff's department Tuesday as the woman's spouse, 72-year-old Robert Edward Harris.
Homicide detectives, crime scene investigators and coroner detectives were summoned, and sheriff's officials said investigation of the death continues. No details have been released regarding the circumstances of the shooting.
