Who keeps a gun in the bathroom?EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) - A woman shot and killed her husband at their home outside of El Dorado, and the Union County sheriff says the slaying was in self-defense.
Sheriff Ken Jones said the incident happened around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, when deputies found 47 year-old Roger Gates dead inside the home. Jones says 37 year-old Kimberly Gates told him that her husband had attacked her and that she was afraid for her life and her baby's.

Jones said the case is still under investigation and that the results will be given to a prosecutor, who will determine if charges should be filed.
