Wife accused of fatally shooting husband in head, as he slept

A Kentucky woman is accused of shooting her husband in the back of the head as he slept, killing him.

Tasha Bentley told police she was fighting her with husband, Gary Bentley, after he attacked their four-year-old son, according to WDRB.

Bentley said her husband threw the boy and hit him. She told police she tried to stop him, but he kicked her, according to the report.

Later, while Gary Bentley was sleeping in the couple’s bed, police said Tasha Bentley grabbed a gun and shot him in the back of the head.

According to the report, police believe Bentley removed several firearms from the couple’s gun safe to make it look like the house was burglarized.

She was arrested on Monday and charged with murder, trafficking in marijuana and tampering with physical evidence.
