Houston, TX: Woman charged in husband's death said he threatened her

A woman told Houston police she shot her common-law husband because he had been cheating and was disrespecting her, according to court documents.

Debra Ann Norton is charged with murder in the death of Charles Brown.

She said that on Jan. 13, they began to argue at their north Houston home in the 6300 block of Micollet. She shot him after he threatened to "knock her out," according a criminal complaint filed by the Harris County District Attorney's Office.

Officers reported that the 47-year-old man had been shot twice, once in the head and once in the back. He died on Friday at Ben Taub General Hospital.

Norton, 45, is in the Harris County Jail on $50,000 bail.
