VANCOUVER, Wash. -- A 73-year-old Vancouver man accused of fatally shooting his wife after learning her plans for the couple's money after their divorce has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.
The Columbian reported that Victor Frye is accused of shooting his 67-year-old wife, Nita, twice on Nov. 12. The couple had been married more than 20 years.
On Wednesday, Clark County Superior Court Judge Daniel Stahnke set Frye's bail at $500,000.
The judge allowed Frye to retain court-appointed lawyer Gerry Wear because Frye doesn't have access to his assets to pay for a private attorney.
The defense lawyer says Frye has at least $108,000 in a joint bank account with his wife.
Prosecutors said Frye told detectives he had found his wife's handwritten notes about her plans for the couple's money after their divorce.
His trial is scheduled for Jan. 28.
