LINCOLN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office was called to a home on Sunday at 12:40 a.m. about a woman saying she had been physically assaulted.

The woman came to her neighbor's house to call police and report the incident. She told police that she shot her husband at their home on Quinn Road.

When deputies arrived on scene, they found 25-year-old Cody A. Newell dead inside the home.

A handgun was recovered by police at the scene.

After investigating further, police found that there were no prior calls to police from that home.
