A 60-year-old woman has been charged with murder in the shooting death of her husband outside Dale City.
Police were called to the 3300 block of Labourn Drive at 8:08 p.m. Wednesday, where they found the suspect, identified as Rene Rachelle Drake, near the front entrance, said Prince William County police Sgt. Jonathan Perok.
Inside, officers found her husband, 54-year-old Tyrone Timothy Drake, suffering a gunshot wound to the upper body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say the couple had an argument inside the home which escalated.
"During the encounter, a firearm was brandished and the victim was shot," Perok said.
The firearm was recovered and Rene Drake was arrested. She is being held without bond at the Prince William-Manassas regional jail on a second-degree murder charge, Perok said.
