Saline County Woman Arrested after Husband Found Shot to Death

Deputies had first thought the man's death was an accident.
BENTON, AR - A Saline County woman is in jail after her husband is found shot to death.

It happened Monday morning shortly after seven o'clock at 7620 Chicot Acres in the eastern part of the county near the Pulaski County line.

Deputies with the Saline County Sheriff's Office (SCSO) were called to the scene on what was reported to be an accidental shooting. When they arrived, the body of Mike Eubanks, 55, was found on a floor inside the home.

The man was taken by ambulance to be flown to the hospital but was pronounced dead before he could be placed on a medical helicopter. His body was sent to the State Crime Lab for an autopsy.

The SCSO says during the investigation by its Criminal Investigation Division, it appeared not to have been an accidental shooting. 

The man's wife, Laura Eubanks, 56, was arrested at the scene and taken to the Saline County Detention Center on a capital murder charge. 

She is being held without bond, pending a bond hearing on Wednesday.
