FREDERICKTOWN, Mo. -- An eastern Missouri woman is facing first-degree murder charges in the death of her husband, a case originally reported as a suicide.

The Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills, Mo.reports that 50-year-old Cheryl Long of Fredericktown was arrested Tuesday in the fatal shooting of her husband, 56-year-old Alan Long.

Emergency crews were called to Long’s home early Monday after a 911 call reported that Alan Long killed himself with a gun. An investigation by Fredericktown police and the Missouri State Highway Patrol led to the murder accusation against Cheryl Long, who is jailed without bond.
