Police: 69-year-old Patricia Hill admits to fatally shooting husband for buying porn

Authorities in Arkansas arrested a woman Saturday after she admitted to fatally shooting her husband for buying pornography.

Officials with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said 69-year-old Patricia Hill called 911 who told dispatchers she just shot her 65-year-old husband, Frank at their home located 36 miles south of Little Rock.

Officers arrived at the home to find Frank Hill dead in a shed on the property.

Police said Frank Hill was shot twice sustained two gunshot wounds.

Sheriff’s officials said investigators questioned Hill, who said she arrived home and went to the shed on her property to confront her husband.

The woman maintained there had never been any physical altercations between the couple.

“However, Mrs. Hill stated that she disagreed with her husband’s purchase of video pornography via the television guide, which she canceled upon discovering the purchase, but Mr. Hill managed to place a subsequent order,” Maj. Lafayette Woods, Jr. said. “Mrs. Hill stated that she entered the shed and asked her husband to leave but he refused.”

Hill told investigators her husband didn’t leave the shed, she retrieved to a .22 caliber pistol from the house.

“She went back to the shed a short time later, where she entered and shot her husband twice, striking him once in the leg and once in the head,” Woods said. “Immediately following the shooting, Mrs. Hill stated that she returned inside the residence, where she returned the weapon and called 911 to report the shooting.”

Investigators have ruled out self-defense as a motive, FOX16 reported.

Hill was booked into the Jefferson County’s detention center on felony probable cause for capital murder in the shooting death of her husband, where she remains without bond.

She is scheduled to appear back in court next week.
