STAFFORD, Va. (AP) - An FBI agent in Stafford County is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of his estranged wife.
The Free Lance-Star reports that Arthur "Art" Gonzales told dispatchers he killed 42-year-old Julia Serna Gonzales in self-defense when he says she attacked him with a knife.
The 43-year-old defendant surrendered to authorities on Friday and is being held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bail.
He was indicted last week for the April 19 shooting after an investigation by the Stafford County Sheriff's Office.
In a call to emergency dispatchers, Gonzales said he shot his wife after she attacked him with a knife, cutting him on the arm.
Gonzales works as a supervisory special agent-instructor at the bureau's National Academy at Quantico.
