HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Huntington Police have arrested and charged a man with the murder of a woman Monday night at her home at 530 Richmond Street in Huntington.

Police say the victim is 58-year-old Kathryn Smith.

Officers quickly arrested a man at a nearby convenience store. Police say 51-year-old Robert Frazier has been charged with Smith's death.

Police say both the victim and the suspect lived at the Richmond street address.

Police had received a tip earlier Monday evening about a domestic assault, which led to them finding Smith's body.

According to court records, a cooperating witness who was at the house at the time told police that the suspect and the victim were in a verbal argument when the suspect picked up a shotgun and fired one shot.

Frazier was arraigned in Cabell County Magistrate Court Tuesday morning. His next court appearance is September 5.
