An Arkansas woman was arrested Saturday after telling police she shot and killed her husband because he bought pornography, officials said.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release it received a call around 2:30 p.m. of 69-year-old Patricia Hill, who told dispatchers she shot her 65-year-old man, Frank.

When police arrived at the house, located about 36 miles south of Little Rock, she found Frank Hill’s death in a warehouse on the site. Hill sustained two gunshot wounds to the top and bottom of the body, police said.

The sheriff’s office said that during an interview with Hill, she told the investigators that she came home and went to the barn on her property to confront her husband, but there was never any physical facts between the couple.

Frank Hill’s body was found in a shed on the property of the spouses.

“She went back to the barn a short time later, where she came and shot her husband twice, striking him once in the leg and once in the head,” Bos said. “Immediately after the shooting, Ms. Hill stated that they are back in the residence, where they the weapon and the 911 report of the shooting.”

At this point, the researchers do not believe that the incident had something to do with self-defense, FOX16 reported.

The hill is currently in the Jefferson County detention center on felony probable cause for the murder in the shooting death of her husband, without bond, and will remain there until her court date next week.
