Officers arrived to the house in the 700 block of Wiggens Ferry Drive around 11:45 a.m. Saturday and ruled her death as homicide because the circumstances were "suspicious in nature."

About 22 different Major Case Squad investigators helped the Creve Coeur Police Department and determined Wilson was the one who shot and killed his wife, Kimberly Wilson.

Adrian Wilson was charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action on Sunday. 

Jordan Channels, a neighbor, said he speak to Kimberly Wilson all the time and she always made an effort to say hi in passing.

"She was real friendly, they would always sit on their back porch and be barbequing and stuff," Channels said. "It was a shocker because it's something you wouldn't expect from this area ... It's very tragic."

The couple had been married for 10 years and police say they had a prior history of abuse. 

His bond was set at $750,000 cash only.
