A woman is behind bars accused of shooting and killing her husband in east Tulsa.

Police say the shooting took place at 12807 E. 39th Street around 8 p.m. on Saturday. A male victim, later identified as Gregory Thomas, was shot once in the stomach and died shortly after getting to the hospital.

Investigators say Thomas' wife, Kateesha Childers, got into an argument with Thomas and then shot him once. Childers took off from the scene but later returned and acted like she didn't know anything, according to TPD.

She is being charged with first-degree murder.
