Deputies with the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office have arrested a woman following the death of her husband early Wednesday, according to the sheriff.

Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace Brad Cummings said he pronounced someone dead at 2:13 a.m. in the Weaver area of the county.

According to a press release, a woman called at 12:06 a.m. and said she found her husband shot in their home on CR 3600 in Saltillo, after she heard a gunshot.

Deputies came to the home and found the man dead and arrested the wife.

The press release does not state who was arrested, but jail records show Cassandra Joyce Minick, 30, of Saltillo, was arrested Wednesday on a charge of first-degree murder.

Cummings said Minick will likely be magistrated on the charge Thursday morning.

The husband's name is being withheld, pending next-of-kin notification. His body was transported to SWIFTS in Dallas for autopsy.
