A Warren County woman who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the 2016 shooting death of her husband will be sentenced Wednesday in Circuit Court before Judge M. James Chaney.

Becky Gail Harris, 51, entered the guilty plea May 5 in connection to the September 2016 murder of her husband, Alfred “Stan” Harris, in which she reportedly shot him in the back of the head during an argument in the couple’s home.

On Sept. 12, 2016, officers were called to the couple’s Smedes Street home about a shooting. As they arrived on the scene, Becky Harris reportedly flagged them down and reported a shooting had occurred inside her home.
