After an argument at night, a Florida woman said she found her husband dead on the floor the next morning. Now, police say she is responsible for his death and charged her with murder.
On July 28, police responded to a Casselberry, Florida, home where Timothy Fitzpatrick was found in the master bedroom with two gunshot wounds, including one on the side of his neck, police said and reported by WKMG.
While in the home, police were told by his wife, 57-year-old Sherry Lynne Fitzpatrick, that she found the victim unresponsive on the floor after they had an argument the night before, officials said.
Authorities said Sherry claimed she slept in a separate room after the argument.
There was no gun found near Timothy, but police said they found a handgun in a nightstand drawer in the bedroom, according to Click Orlando.
During an interview with police on Aug. 10, officials said Sherry provided a revised statement about her husband’s death, which ended the homicide investigation.
Police did not detail what new information she provided that led to her being charged.
Sherry was charged with first-degree murder of her husband and will be taken to Volusia County Jail after she recovers from being treated at a hospital, police said.
Officials said the case is expected to be presented before a grand jury i the coming weeks.
