KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say a Tennessee woman has been charged with murder in the death of her husband.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a news release Tuesday that 46-year-old Timothy Ray Smith was found dead in a home in Andersonville on June 23. A cause of death was not disclosed in the news release.

The bureau says the man’s wife, 44-year-old Shannon Smith, has been indicted on a charge of second-degree murder. She was booked into the Union County Jail on $250,000 bond.

It is not immediately clear if Smith has a lawyer. A phone message left with the criminal court clerk’s office late Tuesday was not immediately returned.
