A woman admitted to detectives on Saturday that she shot and killed her husband because he was beating the family cat.
Mary Harrison, 47, was charged with murdering her husband, Dexter Harrison, 49, in Fall Manor Drive in Dallas, Texas. She told detectives in Dallas that she shot her husband during a heated argument on Saturday, June 2, 2018.
The shooting occurred just before 7:00 a.m. in the 13200 block of Fall Manor Drive in Dallas, according to police. Dexter Harrison was transported to Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, where he was pronounced dead.
Neighbors told CBS that the couple moved into the neighborhood with their two teenage sons several months ago. They said the family’s pet cat went missing, but after the wife posted several signs, it was eventually returned.
“They were some good people. They don’t bother anybody,” neighbor Carl Phillips said. “A man got shot over a cat? It’s kind of crazy.”
