FREDERICKSBURG, Va. -- An FBI agent who told police in Virginia that he fatally shot his estranged wife last month has been charged in her death.

Media outlets say 43-year-old Arthur Gonzales was charged Friday with second-degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony in the April 19 shooting death of Julie Serna Gonzales.

Stafford sheriff's office spokesman Bill Kennedy says Gonzales turned himself in shortly after 6 p.m. He is being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
