WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Williston police say a 24-year-old woman was shot and killed by her husband in their home.

The Williston Herald reports that Chantel House was pronounced dead at Mercy Medical Center on Saturday night. Her husband, 28-year-old Josh House, was charged Monday with manslaughter and reckless endangerment.

The couple lived in the 1000 block of 9th Avenue Northwest. Bond was set at $5,000, though it was unclear whether House was expected to post bond Monday. Until then, he was to remain in the Williams County Correctional Facility.

Williston Police Sgt. Cory Collings told the Bismarck Tribune that the shooting is still under investigation. He declined to give more information.

It was unclear Monday whether Josh House had a lawyer. His next court hearing is set for June 12.
