BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport man is in custody after police say he shot his wife to death Tuesday morning.

Police were called to the Forestview Road home at around 8 a.m. on a report of a domestic dispute.

Once they arrived, police say they found 49-year old Patti Ruthermel-Dore dead from several gunshot wounds. Police arrested her husband, Frank Dore, in connection with her death.

Neighbors say the couple had been arguing a lot recently although police decline to say anything about a motive.

The couple's 11-year-old daughter was home at the time of the shooting. Police say she's now with her older sister who was not home when the murder occurred.
