ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A woman has been arrested and charged with murder after a deadly shooting at a home in the Centerville area early Monday morning, deputies say.

Deputies said they responded to a residence on Cherry Drive shortly before 4 a.m. in reference to a possible shooting, and that upon arrival they found a woman on the front porch of her home on the phone with 911 dispatchers.

Upon entering the residence, deputies located the woman's deceased husband laying on the kitchen floor with several gunshot wounds, the report said.

The incident is believed to have stemmed from a domestic argument which began the prior evening, deputies said.

The coroner identified the victim as Ronnie Everett Selvey, 60.

Deputies later confirmed Selvey's wife, 59-year-old Janet Sue Selvey was taken into custody in connection with the shooting. According to the warrant, Selvey is charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. She is currently in custody at the Anderson County Detention Center.

Boseman said Janet Selvey admitted to shooting her husband not in self defense when she was taken into custody. According to warrants, she also admitted to striking her husband multiple times with a blunt object before shooting him.

A bond hearing has been scheduled for Tuesday morning.
