LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Police say they won't file charges against a woman they say shot and killed her husband Friday night.

Police say she shot Eugene Henderson after an argument. Henderson later died at the hospital.

Officers say she had a domestic violence order against him.

A neighbor says she knew the suspected shooter and that even though it got rough before, Henderson had been living with his wife for weeks.

"He had been there 3 weeks and no arguments, no nothing," said the neighbor. "No police called. No nothing. Then, I mean, she always argued before he came. But, she went and picked him up and brought him over there."

Metro police say because of the order and a recommendation from the Commonwealth Attorney they're not going to charge Henderson's wife with murder.
