HEMINGWAY (AP) Authorities have charged a Hemingway area woman with murder in the weekend shooting death of her husband.


Area media outlets report that 58-year-old Sonia Jay Smith was charged with murder at the Georgetown County Detention Center early Saturday morning. She is charged in the slaying of her husband Fermiond Smith.


Authorities received a 911 call about 9:30 on Friday evening and responded to the home about 10 miles southeast of Hemingway. There they found the victim unresponsive on the floor.


Georgetown County deputies say Sonia Smith made the 911 call. It was not immediately clear if she had an attorney.
