An Isle of Palms woman was arrested and charged in the shooting death of her husband.

According to court documents, Doris Spann Argoe is charged with murder in connection with a Saturday afternoon shooting.

The Charleston County Coroner's Office identified the victim as Jonathan Argoe, 53, who died at MUSC on Saturday from a gunshot wound.

Detectives say Argoe called police saying she had just shot her husband at approximately 4:17 p.m. Saturday. When authorities arrived, they saw the victim lying on the floor with a visible gunshot wound, documents state.

Detectives say Argoe admitted to shooting the victim during an argument and said she armed herself with a handgun as the argument became heated. The defendant also told police she injured herself with a knife after the shooting to make it appear to be self-defense, an affidavit states.

Argoe was being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center.
