59 year old Kathy Skellie was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound Saturday at the home she shared with her husband.
Authorities have charged her husband with manslaughter after police say he helped his wife kill herself.
According to court records, 69 year old Willard Skellie confessed to buying a shotgun, showing her how to use it and leaving it loaded while he went hunting.
He told police she was despondent because of mental health problems.
Police say he was questioned and charged on Sunday with second degree manslaughter after failing a lie detector test.
He is being held on $100,000 bail. It couldn't be determined if he had a lawyer.
