Investigators initially described the woman's death as a suicide.
However, Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal reported Thursday that Komasquin Lopez is now suspected of killing his wife.
An arrest report reveals that as investigators looked into the killing they discovered a series of inconsistencies. During initial interviews, the report states, Lopez told police he never saw the gun and never heard it go off. Instead, he reportedly said, he only heard glass breaking. The report adds that police never found any broken glass, though they did discover a Glock handgun on the truck's floor which Lopez said he always kept in the car.
The report goes on to say that the shot hit Shannon Lopez directly above her left ear canal. The gun also appeared to have been fired while pressed against the woman's skin. But the report notes that Shannon Lopez was right-handed, making her husband's story of a suicide unlikely.
Komasquin Lopez was arrested and charged Thursday with one count of murder, a first-degree felony. His bail was set at $1,000,000.
