MOUNTAINDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities have charged a 57-year-old upstate New York man with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of his wife inside their home last weekend.
Police in the Sullivan County town of Fallsburg tell the Times Herald-Record of Middletown (http://bit.ly/1gjOMAY ) that Kevin Oefelein Sr. was arraigned on murder charges Tuesday, two days after 54-year-old Renee Oefelein was fatally shot inside their home in the hamlet of Mountaindale.
Officials say they're still investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
Kevin Oefelein was first arrested Monday on felony gun charges. He's being held in the county jail. It couldn't immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.
