HOUSTON (AP) — A Texas sheriff’s deputy has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of his wife at their home.

Court records show Richard Spivey called 911 Sunday to say he accidentally shot his wife, Patricia, while “tussling” with a gun during an argument. Spivey was treated for a gunshot wound to the leg.

Harris County jail records show the 63-year-old was being held without bond pending a court appearance Wednesday.

Online jail records didn’t list an attorney representing Spivey.

The sheriff’s office says it’s reviewing his employment status. He was hired as a detention officer in 1996 and became a deputy in 1998
