Lamar County, TX: Lamar Co. Woman Accused Of Killing Husband

LAMAR COUNTY, TX -- A woman is under arrest after authorities say she confessed to killing her estranged husband.

Deputies say the woman sought help shortly after the killing on Wednesday afternoon. Kathleen Erskine, 40, is charged with murder, and deputies say she and her husband were estranged but still living together near Arthur City.

"She had found some utility workers on the county road and asked them to call the police because she had shot her husband, her ex-husband," says sheriff-elect Scott Cass.

According to Cass, when deputies went to the house, they found a man dead inside and he had been shot several times.

Erskine was taken to the Lamar County Jail where she was being held in lieu of $250,000 bond.
