FRUITA, Colo. (AP) - A man accused of shooting and killing his wife in Fruita nearly three months ago is now under arrest in her death.

KKCO-TV (https://bit.ly/1G53bxl ) reports that Steven Spiess was arrested Tuesday after being released from St. Mary’s Hospital after being treated for his injuries in the Jan. 11 shooting.

Danya Speiss called 911 that day and police arrived to find her dead in their home. Steven Speiss was found suffering a gunshot wound to the face.

An arrest affidavit released by police says Danya Speiss called 911 to say she was nervous because her husband was drunk and walking around the house with a gun. Police say her sister told them the couple had been fighting that day because she wanted a divorce.
