A Sheriff's Office deputy's account from a homicide at a home on North 530 Road Sunday reports Stephanie Snow said Rick Arnold told her he was "gonna have to take the gun" she was holding before she shot him.
When Deputy Tanner Hendley arrived at the scene, Snow did not have a weapon. When asked where the firearm was, she pointed out into the yard. She offered to help the deputy find the gun, but Hendley said to tell him where it was. Hendley said the woman was showing signs of "excited utterance," described as a statement made by a person in response to a startling or shocking event. Before she was escorted to the patrol car, she grabbed a Bible and her phone. Hendley later noticed the Bible had a bullet hole in it, so it was taken into evidence.
