UPDATE 4/17/17 @ 11 p.m.
CABELL COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- An arrest has been made in a deadly shooting out of Cabell County.

Angela Chapman, 50, of Lesage, is charged with first-degree murder.

Deputies say Chapman shot her boyfriend, Frank Oldaker, in the head, killing him.

It happened just before 5 p.m. Thursday at the couple's home in the 6000-block of Big Seven Mile Road.

According to the criminal complaint, Chapman's sister received a call from her and could tell something was wrong. When she went to the home, she found Oldaker dead on a couch in the TV room.

The criminal complaint also states when Chapman's sister arrived, Chapman repeatedly said, "I can't believe I did this, I didn't mean to shoot him."

"This is an address where officers have responded to various calls in the past," Sheriff Tom McComas said at the scene.

Patrick Wheeler lives across the street. He says sadly, this doesn't come as a surprise.

"I don't know what happened behind closed doors,” Wheeler said. “There was always screaming, hollering, arguing, and all hours of the night, I'd hear gunfire."

According to the criminal complaint, detectives took Chapman to the sheriff's field office in Ona for an interview, where she said she wanted an attorney.

However, detectives say she kept saying before and after the interview that she couldn't believe she'd shot him, and ‘Why did I pick up the gun and do that?’

Chapman was arraigned in Cabell County Magistrate Court late Thursday evening.

She is being lodged at the Western Regional Jail.
