An Arkansas woman has been charged with murder in the shooting death of her husband. 

Patricia Hill, 69, has been arrested and charged with capital murder after her husband, 65-year-old Frank Hill was found dead.

Hill called 911 stating she had shot her husband, according to a dispatcher with the Jefferson County’s Metropolitan Emergency Communications Association.

Authorities arrived at the couple's home and Frank hill, who had suffered at least two gunshot wounds to the upper and lower body, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

“During the interview, Mrs. Hill admitted to investigators that she arrived home and at some point walked to the utility shed on the property to confront her husband," according to the police report. "Mrs. Hill told investigators that there had never been any physical altercations between her and her husband. However, Mrs. Hill stated that she disagreed with her husband’s purchase of video pornography via the television guide, which she canceled upon discovering the purchase but Mr. Hill managed to place a subsequent order. Mrs. Hill stated that she entered the shed and asked her husband to leave but he refused. Mrs. Hill admitted that she then returned inside the residence, where she armed herself with a .22 caliber pistol. She went back to the shed a short time later, where she entered and shot her husband twice, striking him once in the leg and once in the head. Immediately following the shooting, Mrs. Hill stated that she returned inside the residence, where she returned the weapon and called 911 to report the shooting.”

Patricia Hill is currently being held at the W.C. “Dub” Brassell Adult Detention Center without bond on felony probable cause for capital murder. Hill will remain in custody pending the scheduling of her first court appearance.
