COPY-Miss. woman is arrested in Calif. slaying case

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say a University of Southern Mississippi secretary has been arrested in connection with the 2007 fatal shooting of her husband in California.

WDAM ( ) reports that authorities say Linda Doreen Gwozdz has been charged with murder in the death of her 51-year-old husband, Patrick Albert Duffey. She was arrested on a warrant from Los Angeles County in California. It was not immediately clear if she had an attorney.

Lt. Matthew Burson with the L.A. County Sheriff's office says her arrest on Tuesday morning was made after more information became known in the case.

University officials say she's served as the clinical secretary for the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences in the College of Health since September 2010.
