PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix woman is accused of second-degree murder in the shooting death of her husband.

Phoenix police say 30-year-old Amanda Lynn Miller was arrested Tuesday evening.

Emergency crews were dispatched to the couple’s home on a medical call.

They say the front door was found open and there was a haze of smoke from an extinguished fire.

Police say Miller told officers that she shot her husband.

They say 36-year-old Jesus Nevarez-Galindo had gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators say there was a history of domestic violence between Miller and her husband.

Miller says she and her spouse argued over money and lack of food in their home.

Bond for Miller was set at $500,000 at her initial court appearance. She doesn’t have a lawyer yet.
