INDEPENDENCE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – The man accused of shooting and killing his wife in Batesville had his bond set by a judge.

According to warrant affidavit, 49-year-old Randall Davis was charged with murder in the first degree, and a judge set his bond at $1,000,000.

In the affidavit, Davis said he and his wife, Tricia Davis, got into a verbal and physical argument Tuesday April 23, when she left the residence for a while.

Randall Davis told investigators that Tricia came back to the house a short time later and began arguing with him again.

He told police he snapped, went upstairs to grab his gun shotgun and then shot Tricia several times near the kitchen door.

According to the affidavit he then walked across to his neighbor's house and told him to call police because he just shot and killed his wife, and then waited on the porch for police to arrive.

Davis is due back in court on April 30.
