PHOENIX (AP) - Bond has been set at $750,000 for a Chandler man accused of fatally shooting his wife at a north Phoenix hotel.

Phoenix police arrested 34-year-old Michael Anthony Schwarz on Saturday night on suspicion of second-degree murder, drug possession and being a convicted felon in possession of a weapon.

He didn’t have a lawyer at his initial court appearance Monday.

Police and Drury Inn and Suites employees found Charlene Schwarz dead inside a room near Interstate 17 and Pinnacle Peak Road.

Hotel management told police Charlene Schwarz wasn’t a guest at the hotel, but had been visiting someone in one of the rooms.

Police went to the room where she was visiting and the woman was found lying in a pool of blood.

Phoenix paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.
