A Florida woman is facing a murder charge in the shooting death of her husband in Pembroke Pines, authorities said.
Michelle Marguerite Gibb, 57, was arrested on a first-degree murder charge in the killing of Larry Gibb, officials said.
Pembroke Pines Police said the man’s body was discovered at a townhome on Northwest 106th Terrace.
After the body was found, police began a search for Michelle Gibb, who they said was potentially mentally unstable and possibly armed. She was later found and taken into custody.
“The suspect was indeed in possession of a firearm and it was the same firearm that was used to kill the victim,” Pembroke Pines Police Capt. Adam Feiner said.
The Gibbs had been temporarily living with friends at the townhome where the body was found.
“The homeowners returned to their property after being out for some personal business, and when they returned home they discovered that their friend, their life-long friend was shot dead,” Feiner said.
Their friends say after 25 years of friendship, they never thought Michelle Gibb was capable of such a thing.
A neighbor’s Ring camera captured Michelle Gibb walking down the sidewalk with her purse shortly after the crime.
Police are still trying to determine a motive for the killing.
