A Vancleave man has been charged with shooting his wife to death in their home over the weekend.
Sheriff Mike Ezell says deputies found the body of 40-year old Nina Olivia Brossett in a bedroom of a house on Jim Ramsey Road early Monday morning.
Her husband, 37-year old Sterling Dugas, is charged with first degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
During his initial court hearing this afternoon County Court Judge Mark Watts denied bond for Dugas.
The sheriff says an autopsy will be performed on the victim Thursday.
