CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - A central Arkansas woman has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of her husband last year.

The Log Cabin Democrat (https://bit.ly/2rXdWQK ) reports that 31-year-old Lashawnda Renee Macon accepted a plea agreement Monday requiring her to spend 25 years in prison.

Circuit Judge Charles Clawson Jr. set an August sentencing date, saying he wants more time to review the details of the January 2016 incident that led to 35-year-old Glen “Fredd” Macon Jr.’s death.

Court documents allege Glen Macon physically attacked Lawshawnda Macon while the couple was arguing. She says he took her phone when she tried to call police.

Lashawnda Macon told authorities she shot her husband once from her car after he took off walking down the street.

She remains free on a $100,000 bond previously posted.
