WOODWARD, Okla. (AP) - A 43-year-old Woodward County man is facing a felony charge after investigators say he shot his wife and then fled to Kansas with the couple’s two young children.

Online court records indicate that Chris Leslie Solida was formally charged Monday with assault and battery with a deadly weapon in Woodward County District Court. Solida’s bond was set at $500,000, but the records do not indicate whether Solida is represented by an attorney.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of investigation says Solida allegedly shot his wife in the head on Friday before fleeing to Kansas with the children. The OSBI says police in Great Bend, Kansas, arrested Solida after a brief standoff Friday night.

The OSBI says Solida’s wife has been discharged from a hospital and the children are in state custody.
