Clearwater woman charged in husband's cold case murder

A 46-year-old woman has been charged in the 2008 murder of her husband, according to Clearwater Police Department.
 
Rebecca Ayn Fenton was arrested Friday evening on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Larry Fenton, 57, in Clearwater, police said. The arrest came hours after a Pinellas County grand juror indicted her in her husband’s death.

Larry Fenton was found dead Feb. 3, 2008, of multiple gunshot wounds in his house at 1051 Nokomis St., police said. Rebecca Fenton told police she discovered his body after hearing gunshots as she exercised in a detached garage behind the house.

Investigators say they found a revolver used in the killing in her car in the driveway. Larry Fenton had bought the weapon a year earlier.
