John Moutz, 49, was taken to Via Christi Hospital suffering from a gunshot wound.  He later died.

His wife, Carla Moutz, 51, was taken into custody.

She was set to appear in court Friday afternoon and has already been charged with first degree murder.  Her bond has been set at $250,000.

Detectives say they are still asking for people who knew this couple to contact police.

"There are some neighbors in the area we were unable to make contact with last night," says Pittsburg Police Detective Cris Hatcher.  "We encourage anybody who may have heard or seen anything to contact us at their earliest convenience so that we can collect the information from them."

Police say early investigations show the couple had a nonphysical domestic dispute.
