From NBC12 News

STAFFORD, VA (NBC12) - Stafford authorities have arrested a man suspected of killing his wife.

45-year-old Francisco Escobar is charged with first degree murder.

Investigators say he shot his wife at the couple's home Friday afternoon.

Deputies had arrested Francisco Escobar on Wednesday for alleged domestic assault.

He was bonded out of jail, but a restraining order was supposed to prevent him from having any contact with his wife.

He is now being held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
