PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

A judge found probable cause Thursday to charge a Paragould man with first-degree murder in the shooting death of his wife.

Michael Price is accused of shooting and killing his wife Friday night, Aug. 10, at a home in the 1000-block of Fairview Road.

According to an affidavit, officers entered the home and found Price sitting with a gun at his feet. They found Melana Price dead in the back of the home. 

According to a witness, Michael and Melana Price were having an argument when Michael pulled a gun and shot toward Melana. The witness also told investigators that Michael Price ran after him and fired at least one round. 

Price appeared before a district judge on Thursday, Aug. 16, who found probable cause to charge him with aggravated assault and first-degree murder. The judge set his bond at $250,000 and ordered Henderson to appear in circuit court on Sept. 24.
