Man held in wife's death

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - A Lafayette County man has been charged with murder in the shooting death of his wife.

Sheriff's Department Investigator Scott Mills says 46-year-old James O. Harwell was arrested Monday after his wife's body was found at their home. Harwell was being held in the county jail without bond pending an initial court appearance.

County Coroner Lonnie Weaver says 45-year-old Chris Ann Milam Harwell was pronounced dead at the scene of gunshot wounds.

Mills says the couple's 13-year-old daughter was in the home at the time of the shooting but was not harmed.

Mills says the case is under investigation.
