Authorities say a woman shot and killed her husband's alleged mistress after confronting the younger woman outside her job and chasing her around the parking lot. Bexar County Sheriff's Deputy Chief Dale Bennett says the 32-year-old victim arrived Tuesday morning at her job at an animal hospital, where the wife had been waiting inside her car.

Bennett says that according to witnesses, the 37-year-old wife confronted her rival and began chasing her. Authorities say the younger woman was shot at least twice in the neck and later died at a hospital.

Names of the victim and suspect were not immediately released. Bennett says the wife probably will be charged with murder.

Bennett says an affair had apparently been going on for some time. He said the victim had filed previous complaints about the wife harassing her.
