An investigation determined Inez and Christopher got into an argument and it ended with him being shot, authorities said. 

This isn’t the first run-in police had with Inez and her husband, as previously reported by News 19.

In November 2020, Inez was charged with second-degree assault after shooting at her husband 14 times in a hotel parking lot, police said. However, none of the 14 shots hit her husband and he only had minor injuries from shrapnel, authorities said.

Inez’s bond was set at $75,000 after her arrest for the alleged murder.
