Published:
TACOMA — Pierce County prosecutors say a 48-year-old Tacoma man accused of fatally shooting his wife during an argument has been charged with second-degree murder.
At his arraignment Monday, Darrin Brooks pleaded not guilty and was ordered held on $1 million bail.
In court papers, Prosecutor Mark Lindquist says Brooks told detectives that he and his 28-year-old wife, Renee, had gotten into an argument that led to a physical fight last Thursday at their apartment.
Lindquist says a friend of the victim went to the apartment last Friday, found her dead in a bedroom and called 911.
The prosecutor says patrol officers spotted Darrin Brooks on Saturday, driving a vehicle that was reported stolen two days earlier. They took him into custody after a short chase.
