ALBANY, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon man has made his first court appearance in connection with the shooting death of his estranged wife.

The Democrat-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2lmc94D) that 33-year-old Jason Garlinghouse of Lebanon was arraigned on a murder charge Wednesday.

Police say Garlinghouse called 911 to report the shooting on Valentine’s Day, telling a dispatcher his wife had attacked him.

Police found Sparki Sue Garlinghouse dead from multiple gunshot wounds.

A probable cause affidavit says she was holding a bread knife in one hand and clutching a set of keys and two children’s backpacks in the other.



The couple had reportedly been separated at the time and were in the middle of a custody battle.
