Fairfield woman arrested for husband's death

FAIRFIELD, Ohio (WKRC) - A weekend shooting in Fairfield has turned fatal. Tika Katel, 57, died from his injuries on Monday. His wife, Subha, has been charged with negligent homicide.

Police say Subha Katel shot her husband at their home on Sigmon Way, near Resor Road, at about 3:15 p.m. on August 10. He was flown by medical helicopter to UC Medical Center but died on Monday.

A 911 call by a relative in the home initially said Tika Katel was playing with the gun and accidentally shot himself.

Subha Katel appeared in court Tuesday afternoon with the help of an interpreter. She is allowed to remain out of jail but must be electronically monitored. The judge also ordered her to surrender her passport and remain in Ohio.
