APOLLO BEACH, Fla. (WFLA) — A Hillsborough County woman has been arrested for the Christmas Eve murder of her husband.

Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a home at 517 Flame Tree Circle in Apollo Beach around 9 p.m. on Christmas Eve where they found 47-year-old Shawn Singleton deceased on the floor. Deputies say he suffered a gunshot wound to the upper torso.
