MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) - The Madison County Sheriff's Office is investigating a homicide in the 100-block of Oldwood Road in the Chase area that left a 75-year-old man dead.  It happened around 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Investigators say Martha Ann Stice, 65, shot her husband, John Donald Stice, 75, one time. He died from the gunshot wound.

Authorities say it was the result of a possible domestic dispute between the two. They found lacerations on Martha's chest and shoulder. She was taken to the hospital for those injuries.

Deputies say they had been called to the same home responding to a domestic violence call one other time in July 2015.

The case is still under investigation pending additional information, interviews and autopsy results.

The sheriff's office says no arrests have been made, but the case may still be presented to a grand jury.
