FAIRBANKS -- A Fairbanks woman charged with attempted murder is being held without bail in the Fairbanks Correctional Center.
According to a criminal complaint, 46-year-old Christine Louise Mills' husband was shot multiple times with a .22-caliber rifle.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that Mills called Alaska State Troopers on Wednesday afternoon to report the shooting. Troopers say Mills told them that her husband had assaulted her and that she had fired a gun at him.
Mills was arrested Wednesday evening and charged with attempted murder. Her husband was admitted to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, where staff said he had about five gunshot wounds and required surgery.
Mills was arraigned Thursday in Fairbanks.
