BLADENBORO — A Bladenboro woman has been arrested after authorities say she shot and killed her husband.
Bladen County Sheriff's deputies were called to an address in Bladenboro around 6:30 a.m. Friday. When they arrived, they say Becky Nance, 53, came out of the house, put her hands behind her back and told them she had killed her husband.
Inside the home, they found the body of 55-year-old Dewey Nance. He had been shot once. Becky Nance was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. She was first taken to the Bladen County Jail and was being held without bond.
The sheriff's department said she was later transferred to Raleigh for her own safety. Authorities say this was the first time law enforcement had ever been called to the home.
