Sept. 5, 2009, 11:31AM

Criminal charges are pending against a Houston woman police say admitted to fatally shooting her husband.

According to Houston police, Cesar Barrera and his wife got into an argument around 9:25 p.m. Friday at the couple's home in the 10700 block of Lumber Ridge Trail.

“At some point, the wife goes into a closet and retrieves the husband's handgun and shoots him while he's in bed,” Houston Police Department spokesman Victor Senties said.

The woman remained at the southeast Houston home until police arrived.
“She pretty much admits to her involvement in this deal,” Senties said.
The wife's name has not been released because she has not been formally charged, Senties said.

Barrera, 28, was taken to Ben Taub General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
