A 45-year-old Cleveland man was shot to death inside his home today in what police are calling a domestic incident.
Police believe Miranda Cheatham killed her husband, James Cheatham, during a domestic dispute around 6:17 a.m. today. She has not been arrested or charged.
West said police are still determining what led to the shooting and whether criminal charges are appropriate.
The first officers to arrive at the home at 805 Sunset Avenue found James Cheatham lying mortally wounded on the floor. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
The Cheathams' teenage son was also home during the shooting.
Miranda Cheatham called 911, West said. Investigators have interviewed witnesses and are currently processing the scene, she said.
West declined to say how many times James Cheatham was shot.
The Cheathams have owned the home on Sunset Avenue since 2007, according to property records. Neighbors said James Cheatham ran a roofing business and also worked on yards.
