SPRING, Texas (TCD) -- A 51-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly fatally shooting a man she called her husband over the weekend because he said he was in love with someone else.
On Saturday, May 7, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted that constables from the fourth precinct responded to a shooting at 23642 Buttress Root Drive and found a male suffering from gunshot wounds. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
According to Gonzalez, Karin Stewart "advised responding deputies that she shot her husband."
KPRC-TV reports the victim has been identified as James Hargrove. At Stewart’s court appearance Monday, however, a woman named Sandra Hargrove said she was James' wife and she is "trying to figure out what’s going on."
She told KPRC, "I’m legally his wife. We’ve been married since 2009. We met in 2006. We just separated in November."
Sandra assumed Stewart was her husband’s caregiver but she wasn’t positive because she’s "never met the person."
Sandra told KPRC the whole situation is "very hard to believe" because she and James had been married for 14 years. They reportedly talked every other day.
"I had no idea about any of this. All this is new," she said.
