A 60-year-old Wilmington woman has been charged with murder in the shooting death of her husband this month.

New Castle County police say Donna Sciglitano was arrested and charged Tuesday with murder and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony.

Police say they were called to Sciglitano's home in the 200 block of Beau Tree Drive on Sept. 16 for a report of a shooting victim. Authorities say they found 59-year-old Nino Sciglitano Sr. dead inside the home.

Authorities say Donna Sciglitano was found unresponsive inside the home, and was taken to a hospital for treatment of an apparent overdose.

Police say she is currently being held without bail at a correction facility in New Castle.
