Wife charged after Didsbury senior found shot dead




A 60-year-old Didsbury-area woman was charged Saturday night with second-degree murder after the shooting death of her husband.

Police found the 68-year-old man dead in a rural home west of Didsbury Friday night after police say a woman called saying she shot her husband.

Before Friday's phone call, RCMP say they had not had "any prior domestic violence investigations associated to the accused and deceased," said RCMP spokesman Sgt. Tim Taniguchi. "I can tell you it is classified as a family relations incident," Taniguchi said.

He would not say whether anyone else was at the residence at the time of the incident, nor whether a weapon was seized at the scene.

The RCMP major crimes unit and forensic identification services are on the scene today to continue the investigation.

The family of the deceased has requested police not to release the victim's name.

Mounties charged Heather Wilson Duncan with seconddegree murder.

Duncan is scheduled to appear in Provincial Court in Didsbury on Monday.
