Decatur woman charged with murder after shooting husband

Police arrested a woman after they say she shot her husband at their home in southwest Decatur.

Michelle Lee Owens was taken into custody on murder charges after police found her husband Lawrence Edward Owens II dead at the home on Lenox Drive Sunday.

During a welfare check in the Dunbarton subdivision, officers made contact with the wife and a young boy. They later discovered the husband's deceased body at the home with an apparent gunshot wound.

David: Another warm and muggy start to the day

Skies are mainly clear Monday morning, and it’s another warm and muggy start to the day. 

Temperatures are generally in the low-to-mid 70s. We could see a few foggy spots before 8 a.m. Clouds should be increasing through the day Monday, and an isolated shower is possible in the morning. The higher chance for rain and storms will hold off until the afternoon. Scattered storms can be expected, and some of them will be strong with frequent lightning, gusty winds, and locally heavy rain. Outside of the storms, winds should switch to the north around 10 mph. While rain is not a guarantee for everyone, storm coverage this afternoon should be more widespread than it was over the weekend. Storms should fade away as the sun sets. 

We hope you'll join Margo Gray, Trent Butler and David Ernst for WAFF 48 News this morning. Remember, you can always watch online at WAFF.com/Live or by tapping "Watch Newscasts" on your WAFF News mobile app.waff.
