MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — Sheriff’s officers say a Medford, Ore., man has been arrested in his wife’s death.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports (http://is.gd/dBtYp8 ) that Jackson County deputies and firefighters found 34-year-old Kristy Huddleston dead with a gunshot wound early Friday in the couple’s home. Emergency crews had responded to a 911 call that reported a person bleeding.

Deputies, Oregon State Police and local police agencies fanned out to look for 43-year-old Bourne Huddleston and arrested him at an Eagle Point home for investigation of murder.

He was held without bail in the county jail.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Andrea Carlson says the couple’s 10-year-old son had been at their home. He’s now in the care of the state Department of Human Services.
