A South Carolina woman was arrested after the dead body of her unresponsive husband was found with two gun-shot wounds.
Darren Elmore was cutting his grass on a riding lawnmower on June 26 when his ex-wife Ella LaQuarles Harrison-Elmore shot him with a shotgun, reported ABCNEWS4.
According to Dorchester County Coroner Paul Brouthers Harrison-Elmore fatally shot her ex after an argument. In an arrest affidavit from the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office, Harrison-Elmore confessed to the shooting.
A witness told police they heard Harrison-Elmore say she "was going to kill the victim then provided verbal admittance that she had shot the victim,”said the affidavit.
After the shooting, Harrison-Elmore called 911 and told the dispatcher that "she was arguing with her ex-husband, that he had a shotgun in another room and that he had threatened her with it earlier," The Post and Courier reported.
