Murder mars Easter Day


The calm of Easter afternoon was shattered by gunfire Sunday, as police say a woman shot and killed her husband at their home in Cottonwood Estates.

Mark Bennett, 51, was pronounced dead at the scene Sunday evening a little after 6 p.m. and his wife, Kandy Bennett, 40, was arrested and charged with murder in an incident that left neighbors shocked and unsettled. Spencer County Coroner Danny Hilbert said an autopsy was being conducted Monday, but noted that Bennett had been shot multiple times.
