The shooting was reported around 4:45 p.m. Tuesday in the 11600 block of Mary Ingles Highway. More than five hours after the shooting, investigators were still at the scene gathering evidence.
Cheryl Allender, 37, was shot dead, Campbell County police said.
She was a mother of six, neighbors said, and a member of Mentor Baptist Church. Neighbors added that several young children lived in the home.
Witnesses said they heard around five gunshots and a car peeling out of the driveway.
John Allender, 36, the victim’s husband, was arrested and charged with murder. He is being held at the Campbell County Detention Center.
A neighbor who did not want to be named told WLWT he saw a couple fighting outside the home earlier Tuesday afternoon.
“I heard they were getting divorced. When I drove by the house, they were out in front of the yard. It looked like they were arguing. I didn’t know for sure,” he said. “I should have said something, but I didn’t.”
