Pregnant woman faces charges of killing husband in Doney Park

A spokesperson with Coconino County Sheriff's Office says a pregnant woman is in custody after she told members of law enforcement that she shot and killed her husband while their three-year-old child was in the home.

Deputies were told about the shooting on Friday, and they responded to her home in the Doney Park neighborhood and found the body of a 54-year-old man.  A spokesman for the sheriff's office, Gerry Blair, says the female suspect is now facing one count of second-degree murder as well as three counts of tampering with evidence.

The 43-year-old female suspect is pregnant with the victim's second child.  The victim and suspect have lived together for five years, and they had a three-year-old child together.  The toddler was at home when the murder happened, according to the sheriff's office. 

The sheriff's office has not released the names of the victim or suspect as deputies continue their investigation.
