Hopkins County Sheriff’s Deputies continue to investigate the details of a domestic dispute from this morning, that left one person dead and the other person in stable condition at an area hospital.
Around 8:30 a.m. sheriff’s deputies responded to 18-62 Forrest Acres Loop in reference to a domestic dispute.
Deputies say 69-year old David Marks was severely injured after he was shot by his wife, 68-year old Roberta Marks for unknown reasons.
