MASSILLON, Ohio (AP) - Police in northeastern Ohio say a wife is suspected of fatally shooting her husband following a New Year’s Eve domestic dispute.

Massillon police say 29-year-old Robert McKernan was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds when they arrived just after 11 p.m.

Police say the victim’s wife, Colleen McKernan, told dispatchers she had shot her husband and was performing chest compressions.

Police took the 26-year-old woman into custody without incident and booked her into the Stark County Jail on a preliminary charge of murder. It was unclear if she had an attorney and jail officials couldn’t be reached.

Massillon police Sgt. Brian Muntean (muhn-TEEN’) said Thursday the couple was recently married.
