SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A 70-year-old Northern California woman is being held without bail after being arrested for allegedly killing her husband - the second time in nearly 30 years she's been accused of killing a husband.
El Dorado County officials say Colleen Ann Harris was arrested last Sunday after deputies were called to her home in rural Placerville and found 72-year-old Robert Harris dead of a gunshot wound.
Sheriff's officials say Robert Harris was Colleen Harris' husband, though Sacramento television station CBS13 reports the couple divorced in 2004, but later reconciled.
In 1985 Colleen Ann Harris - then known as Colleen Ann Batten - was charged with killing her then-husband, 46-year-old James Batten.
She was acquitted of murder after claiming the shooting of Batten was self-defense.
