The Pamlico County Sheriff's Office told local media that 69-year-old Linda Griffin is charged with an open count of murder. She is jailed without bond, and it's not known if she has an attorney.
Deputies responded to a call at a home on N.C. Highway 306 in Grantsboro on Wednesday and found 74-year-old Raymond Griffin with a gunshot wound to his chest.
A news release from the sheriff's office said the Griffins both lived at the home.
