Homicide investigation in Walters

Walters_ An elderly man was shot to death in his backyard Monday afternoon in Walters, and investigators say his wife told them she killed him.  Cotton County Sheriff Paul Jeffrey says Iona Allen, 66, shot and killed her husband, Harry Williams, 74.  

Sheriff Jeffrey said his office received a call from Allen between 2pm and 3pm where she told dispatch, she shot and killed her husband outside their home on Shooters Hill road, about three miles north of State Highway 5, about two miles west of Walters.   Jeffrey said the couple had altercations and arguments in the past, but nothing that needed law enforcement intervention, and the shooting comes as a shocking surprise.

The sheriff's office called in the support of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investgation, and an investigator says Allen shot Williams in the upper chest from close range with a single shot from a 12-gauge shotgun. He says it appears the two started arguing inside the house, then moved to the backyard where she shot him. Deputies took her into custody and interviewed her father, who was also at the house at the time of the shooting.
