(Meredith) – An Arkansas woman was arrested after telling police she shot and killed her husband because he bought pornography.

Patricia Hill, 69, called 911 on Saturday to report the shooting, KARK-TV reported. Deputies arrived at the couple’s home in White Hill and found her husband, 65-year-old Frank Hill, dead in a backyard shed.

The woman said she was angry because her husband ordered porn through their cable provider after she canceled his subscription, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

She told authorities she went into the shed and asked her husband to leave. When he refused, she reportedly went into the house and grabbed a .22 caliber pistol.

"She went back to the shed a short time later, where she entered and shot her husband twice, striking him once in the leg and once in the head," Maj. Lafayette Woods, Jr. said.

At this point, investigators don’t believe the shooting was an act of self-defense, KARK reported.

Hill is currently being held in the Jefferson County detention center on felony probable cause for capital murder.
