Published:
VANCOUVER, Wash. -- A retired Vancouver man has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting his wife in a dispute about money related to their pending divorce.
The Columbian reported that Victor Frye, 73, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Clark County Superior Court to second-degree murder. He had been charged with first-degree murder in the Nov. 12 death of Nita Frye, his wife of more than 20 years.
According to court documents, the retired U.S. Postal Service employee told detectives he found his wife's handwritten notes about her plans for the couple's money after their divorce. Enraged, he waited for her to return home, confronted her with a handgun and shot her.
Sentencing was set for Feb. 1.
