Kingsburg woman charged in death of husband

FRESNO, Calif.

Investigators say 48-year-old Kathryn Ellis shot and killed Robert Ellis last week in the couple's home.

Action News has also learned Kathryn Ellis looked into opening a life insurance policy on her husband in the week's leading up to his death. But an insurance agent says she never went through with the policy.

Investigators say Ellis told them an intruder shot her husband. The Fresno County Sheriff's Office says physical evidence in the home points to Kathryn Ellis as the shooter.
