EUGENE -- Police in Florence arrested a 73-year-old woman accused of fatally shooting her 93-year-old ex-husband.
Police say Carolyn Sue Stickley called 9-1-1 to report the killing Sunday. Officers then went to the home of Erwin Drake and found him dead.
The Register-Guard newspaper reports Stickley was charged with murder. She did not enter a plea at her arraignment Monday and remained in the Lane County Jail.
Court records show the couple divorced in 2010 after 24 years of marriage. In 2009, the woman filed a request for a restraining order, claiming her husband had waved a loaded pistol at her and told her she would be sorry if she ever took any of his things.
Drake, a retired Boeing engineer, denied his wife's claims, and the couple soon divorced.
