VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say they’ve arrested a 27-year-old man in connection with the death of his wife in Vancouver, Washington.

The Columbian reports (https://goo.gl/aXwW4A ) that police responded to a weapons disturbance call at a home Tuesday night. A probable cause affidavit says deputies found Amanda Marjama dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

A relative told police they heard a gunshot and found Todd Richard Marjama in a bedroom holding a revolver. Another relative found the woman’s body in a bathroom.

Authorities say the man fled but they caught up with him in a driveway a few blocks away.

Todd Marjama was treated for injuries at a Portland hospital and booked into Clark County Jail on a murder charge. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.
