ANDERSON, Texas (AP) - A Central Texas man has been charged in the fatal shooting of his estranged wife at her home.

The Grimes County Sheriff’s Office says Kelly Armstrong of Navasota (nah-vuh-SOH’-tuh) surrendered Wednesday to face a murder charge, with bond set at $150,000.

District Attorney Tuck McLain says 40-year-old Autumn Armstrong and her spouse were divorcing. The husband early Monday called 911 to report his wife was shot. McLain says the woman was found dead in her bed with a gun nearby.

Preliminary autopsy results indicated Autumn Armstrong was shot in the right thigh and bled to death. McLain says it didn’t appear that Armstrong provided medical help to his wife before emergency responders arrived.

An attorney for Armstrong didn’t immediately return a message Wednesday.



Navasota is 65 miles northwest of Houston.
