TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — An 86-year-old man is accused of fatally shooting a woman in Twin Falls.
Paul Robert Welch was arrested Saturday. He is facing a first-degree murder charge.
According to court documents, 81-year-old Barbara Sue Chitwood was found dead from gunshots to her head at her home on Friday. Twin Falls spokesman Josh Palmer says a passerby had been approached by an elderly man who asked him to call 911.
The relationship between Chitwood and Welch is unknown.
Welch was taken to a nearby hospital after the shooting. The nature of his injuries has not yet been released.
