HARRISONVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- A 55-year-old Harrisonville woman has been charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the shooting death of her estranged husband.
Prosecutors say Billie Campbell shot 60-year-old Eldon "Rocky" Campbell Jr. on Thursday outside a camper trailer at their fire protection business in Harrisonville.
Electronic court records show Billie Campbell filed for divorce in April and both parties had been granted protection orders against each other.
A probable cause statement says Billie Campbell was found passed out in a Cadillac Escalade later Thursday night suffering from a possible overdose of alcohol and prescription medication.
It was unclear from electronic court records if she had obtained an attorney. A phone call left with a lawyer who had represented her in the past wasn't immediately returned.
