A 38-year-old woman has been charged with the murder of her husband, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said today.
Stephanie Marquez Sibert shot Stephon Sibert once in the head, Lott said in a press release.
The Siberts were in a verbal altercation about 3:30 a.m. Sunday at 141 Charmont Dr. when the incident occurred, Lott said. The house is located northeast of Columbia, between Spring Valley Country Club and I-77.
After Sibert shot the victim she fled the home along with an adolescent son to a neighbors house where they called emergency management services, Lott said.
Lott characterized the shooting as an unfortunate incident that did not have to take place.
