Mary Todd, 76, has been charged by investigators for the murder of her husband after she told deputies she was angry because he accused her of cheating.

Aiken County deputies in South Carolina say Mary Todd also told the officers who came to her Beech Island home around 4 a.m. Tuesday and that she drank too much before the confrontation.

The deceased was identified by Coroner Tim Carlton as 78-year-old William Todd. Paramedics pronounced him dead in the couple's home. He was killed by gunshot wound.

Deputies say they had never been to the couple's home before for a domestic violence call.

Mary Todd is also charged with possession of a weapon during a violent crime. She is being held at the Aiken County jail awaiting a bond hearing.
