Deputies with the Stevens County Sheriff’s Office had responded to a 911 call reporting a homicide at 5 p.m., and found Cosby in his front yard and his wife, Susan May Cosby, 53, dead inside the home, the victim of several gunshot wounds.

Craig Cosby was booked into the Stevens County Jail on a charge of first-degree murder, and is being held on $250,000 bail, according to the sheriff’s office.

The coroner’s office has requested an autopsy, which is expected early this week.
