Mississippi man accused of shooting estranged wife for not talking to him, police say

A Mississippi man is accused of shooting his estranged wife in the face during an argument, officials said.

News outlets report 31-year-old Victoria Jefferson was taken to a hospital and was listed in stable condition.

Vicksburg police Chief Milton Moore said she told officers that her husband, 61-year-old Milton Ray Jefferson, shot her after she refused to stop and talk to him Monday night.

Police said the Jeffersons have been separated for about a month.

Moore said Milton Jefferson surrendered to police and is charged with aggravated assault-domestic violence. Additional details were not released.
