Cache man shot dead after possible domestic dispute

Cache_An overnight shooting has left a Cache man dead.  Police have arrested a woman in connection with the shooting - the two were living together.  Cache dispatch got a 911 call just before midnight on Monday.  When emergency crews arrived, they found the 62-year-old man, with an apparent gunshot wound.  Larry DuBois later died as a result.

No one has been charged yet, so investigators are not releasing the name of the suspected shooter.  However, police say the two were married, and living together - they say they believe it was a domestic dispute. 

Arnold Apauty is the couple's neighbor.  He says they were known to have an abusive relationship, and often drank heavily.  Coveta Tomakahara also lives next door, and says she agrees that the couple fought often.  She says she heard the pair fighting outside her bedroom window at about 10:30 p.m. - not long before a shot was fired.  Tomakahara says she heard the couple argue for quite some time, followed by car doors slamming.  She says she fell asleep, though, and didn't actually hear the gunshot. 

Cache Police say the couple lived together, and were the only two in the home at the time the incident occurred.  When emergency crews responded to the call, they say they found the victim on the floor with one gunshot wound to the chest. 

Based on what neighbors say about their abusive relationship, they say they aren't surprised it led to a tragic end.  Police have offered no motive, but the case is being investigated.  The woman arrested has not been charged, but that could soon change.
