CASTLE HAYNE, N.C. (AP) - A New Hanover County woman is now charged with first degree murder after her ex-husband died of wounds from being shot earlier this week.

Authorities tell local media that 31-year-old Robert Crampton died Tuesday.

His ex-wife, 28-year-old Jennifer Crampton, had originally been charged with assault with a deadly weapon. It was not immediately known if she had an attorney.

Court records indicate the shooting happened in a mobile home park Monday hours after the couple signed an agreement on custody of their young child.
