OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR/CNN) – A 74-year-old woman allegedly admitted to police and witnesses in Oklahoma City she shot her husband, who died several days later of his injuries.
Faye Richard, 74, is charged with first degree murder in the shooting of her husband, 76-year-old Kenneth Richard, following what police say was an argument between the two.
Police say Kenneth Richard was driving a white SUV when an argument began between him and his wife of more than two decades. Then, she allegedly opened fire inside the vehicle.
Court records say witnesses saw Kenneth Richard “fall face first into the pavement,” and Faye Richard told them, “I shot him.”
“His wife got out of the car and was nonchalantly, ‘I shot him.’ And I was like, ‘Holy cow, OK.’ She seemed a little bit off her rocker…” witness Amanda Montez said. “He was just laying there, and then, he had said he had been shot. We pulled his jacket back, and sure enough, there was a bullet hole.”

A decades-long effort to recover mass burial plots from the 1921 Tulsa race riot has been spurred forward after an investigation found that two sites in the Oklahoma city may contain unmarked mass graves.
The Tulsa race riot of 1921, also called the Tulsa race massacre, resulted in the death of hundreds of African American residents of the city’s Greenwood district — then a black economic hub — when a mob of white rioters looted and burned the community.
An estimated 10,000 white people flooded into Greenwood, looting, burning, shooting, and, in some accounts, bombing black residents.
Following the attack, 35 city blocks were burned, over 800 were injured, and as many as 300 people were dead, according to the Tulsa Historical Society and Museum.
