VALRICO (FOX 13) -

The state attorney's office will not charge a 56-year-old woman who fatally shot her husband Sunday night.

After investigating the incident, authorities believe she was defending herself during a domestic dispute with her husband, Robert L. Walker, who had been arrested before for domestic battery.

Detectives believe Walker was attacking his wife, Cynthia, when she grabbed a gun and shot him inside their home.

The sheriff's office detained her, questioned her, and then released her. They said she was fully cooperative in their investigation.

The state attorney's office said an autopsy is pending for Robert Walker.
