A woman is dead and a 76-year-old Mississippi man is in custody following a domestic disturbance in Lafayette County.

WTVA-TV reports deputies were dispatched to a home in the county Friday and found a woman had been shot to death.

Sheriff’s Major Alan Wilburn says investigators arrested Jimmy Hester at the scene.

He faces a charge of murder and is scheduled for a court appearance Monday.

It was unknown if he has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
