OWASSO - An Owasso woman was arrested Friday night after a domestic dispute turned deadly.
Tulsa County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the 9200 block of East 116th Street North just after 9 p.m. Friday after Vickie Lou McNeely, 69, called 911 stating she had shot her husband after he came toward her with a knife, deputies said.
Deputies arrived and found Daniel McNeely in the hallway to the left of the front door in a kneeling position with his head against the floor.
To the left of his head were two silver kitchen knives, deputies said.
He had what appeared to be five bullet wounds, including one to the back of the head.
Deputies discovered a .38-caliber revolver with a five-shot cylinder with all five rounds spent.
Vickie Lou McNeely smelled of alcohol and had slurred speech, deputies said.
Deputies transported her to the Sheriff's Office and then to the Tulsa Jail, where she was booked on complaints of first-degree murder.
