Va. FBI agent arrested in wife's shooting deathMay 10, 2013 @ 5:11 pm
FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) - An FBI agent who told police in Virginia that he fatally shot his estranged wife last month has been charged in her death.
Media outlets say 43-year-old Arthur Gonzales was charged Friday with second-degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony in the April 19 shooting death of Julie Serna Gonzales.
Stafford sheriff's office spokesman Bill Kennedy says Gonzales turned himself in shortly after 6 p.m. He is being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
During a recorded 911 call, Gonzales told the dispatcher his wife attacked him with a knife and that he had to shoot her.
He works as a supervisory special agent and instructor at the bureau's National Academy at Quantico.
It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.
