A Houston woman's story about her husband's death Sunday didn't match up with the evidence, investigators said, and she ended up being charged with his murder. According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, Marcia Jacqueline Dinanno called 911 around 3:20pm Sunday to report that a masked intruder shot her husband and attacked her at their home in the 12900 block of New Cypress Drive.

Deputies said they arrived and found Dinanno's husband -- 57-year-old Henry Joseph Breaux -- shot to death inside the home.

Dinanno was transported to an area hospital where she refused treatment, officials said. They then took her to the HCSO homicide unit for a statement.

The scene investigation contradicted Dinanno's statement, according to authorities, and she was charged with the murder of Breaux.? ?

Dinanno, 59, was being held Monday at Harris County Jail on $100,000 bond. She was slated to appear in the 232nd district court Tuesday.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact HCSO at 713-967-5810 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. All Crime Stoppers tipsters remain anonymous.
