Police: Woman says she shot, killed husband because he bought porn

JEFFERSON COUNTY, AR -- An Arkansas woman was arrested Saturday after telling investigators with the Sheriff's Office she shot and killed her husband because he bought pornography.

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, just after 2:30 p.m. 69-year-old Patricia Hill called 911 and told dispatchers she just shot her husband Frank.

When investigators got to the couple's home in the 3000 block of Donaldson Lane, they found 65-year-old Frank Hill dead in a backyard shed. Investigators say Frank had been shot twice.  

According to the Sheriff's Office, Patricia Hill told investigators she was angry her husband ordered porn on the TV, after she had canceled his subscription. Hill then told investigators she went to the shed where Frank was, asked him to leave. When he said no, she went into the house, got a gun, then shot him.

"Immediately following the shooting, Mrs. Hill stated that she returned inside the residence, where she returned the weapon and called 911 to report the shooting,” said Maj. Lafayette Woods.

During her interview, the Sheriff's Office says Hill told investigators there were never any physical fights between her and her husband, so at this point investigators do not believe the incident had anything to do with self-defense.

Patricia Hill is currently in Jefferson County's detention center and will stay there until her court date next week.
