BOGUE CHITTO, Miss. (AP) - Lincoln County sheriff's deputies are investigating the shooting death of a Bogue Chitto woman.

Sheriff Steve Rushing said 29-year-old Mariah Barron was found in the front yard of her home by her husband Luke Barron about 12:38 a.m. Sunday.

The sheriff said authorities are treating the death as foul play.

The Enterprise-Journal reports no charges have been filed in the case, pending an autopsy and tests from the Mississippi State Crime on evidence including a shotgun collected at the scene.

Rushing said Barron found his wife after returning from taking 1 of his children back to his ex-wife's home.
