MINDEN, Nev. (AP) - A Zephyr Cove woman has been arrested for murder in the shooting death of her husband.

The Douglas County sheriff’s office says 50-year-old Tatiana Leibel was arrested Tuesday on a charge of open murder. The crime encompasses a range of severity, from manslaughter to first-degree murder.

Authorities were called to the couple’s home in Zephyr Cove around 11 a.m. Sunday. Investigators say Leibel told duties that her husband, 64-year-old Harry Leibel, had shot himself. She said they were the only people at the home when the shooting occurred.

But the sheriff’s office says information obtained during an investigation implicated Tatiana Leibel as a suspect.

She was being held without bail at the Douglas County Jail.
