Phoenix man charged in murder-suicide

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Police have arrested a Phoenix man accused of fatally shooting a woman as part of a murder-suicide plan.

Police spokesman Steve Martos said Tuesday that 44-year-old Darren Helton was booked into jail this week after being treated for injuries he sustained in the incident.

Martos says Helton faces one count each of second-degree murder and being a prohibited possessor.

Authorities say Helton shot 29-year-old Elizabeth Smith on Friday at a Phoenix apartment and then attempted suicide.

The couple lived together at the apartment.
