MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) - A 49-year-old Midwest City man suspected of fatally shooting his wife has been arrested on a murder complaint.

Police say Robert Lee Moon was taken into custody Saturday after he called police to report that he had shot his wife, 51-year-old Denise Moon.

Authorities say Robert Moon called police at 12:45 a.m. and said: "I just shot my wife." Officers who responded found Denise Moon inside her vehicle in the driveway with a gunshot wound to the chest.

She was taken to an area hospital and was pronounced dead a short time later.

Police Chief Brandon Clabes says there is no history of domestic violence at the residence. Clabes says domestic violence is hard to prevent and has become the No. 1 killer of woman.
