ATKINS, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas woman faces a murder charge on accusations she shot her husband in the back of the head and tried to dispose of his body.

Forty-nine-year-old Donna McCabe was arrested Saturday and charged with first-degree murder in the death of 47-year-old Robert McCabe. Her bail has been set at $750,000. It wasn’t immediately clear if she has an attorney.

She’s accused of killing her husband while he was sitting in a recliner inside their home in Atkins. His body was found by police responding to a report of a possible homicide Saturday night.

The man’s body has been sent to the state crime laboratory for an autopsy.
