CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Wyoming man accused of shooting his wife before calling 911 and confessing to the crime faces a first-degree murder charge.

Prosecutors say 49-year-old Edward E. Robertson walked out of his home in Casper and surrendered to police Friday.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports police allegedly found 42-year-old Dana Marie Robertson dead of a single gunshot inside the home. Robertson remained jailed Tuesday and didn't have an attorney on file to comment.

Robertson allegedly told a detective he kicked his wife out of their home a few weeks ago because he thought she was cheating on him. He allegedly told a detective they reconciled but on Friday she asked for a separation.
