An Albertville woman has been charged with murder after police discovered a man shot to death outside her home.

At around midnight Thursday, deputies with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office and Douglas Police Department responded to a call of shots fired at a residence on Johnson Drive in Albertville.

When law enforcement arrived on scene, a white male, identified by police as Christopher Allen Wright, was located outside behind the residence deceased with multiple gunshot wounds.

Kathy Lynn Wright, 53, of Albertville, was taken into custody and charged with murder, the sheriff's office said. No bond has been set at this time.

The sheriff's office did confirm to The Reporter that the victim and suspect were married. Assistant Chief Deputy Steve Guthrie said Wright was picked up at a different location than where the body was found.

The Marshall County Coroner’s Office and the Alabama Department of Forensic Science are assisting with the ongoing investigation.
