It would appear that accusing Mary Todd, 76, of cheating â€“ especially while sheâ€™s drinking â€“ is a profoundly bad idea. Her husband learned that the hard way. She killed him for it.
South Carolina resident William Todd, 78, was found dead from a single gunshot to the abdomen when police arrived at the couple’s home in reference to a domestic dispute call.
The call came around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20th, and Mrs. Todd was the only one home at the time of the shooting. She outright confessed.
She told the investigators that sheâ€™d had too much to drink when he confronted her about cheating on him.
Beech Island police arrested her on a charge of murder and she was was booked into the Aiken County Detention Center, her bail set $245,000.
She had no prior criminal history.
