Maypearl Police arrested Sandra Garner on Wednesday and charged her with her husband's murder.

She is in the Ellis County Jail, under a $2 million bond.

Maypearl Police say they were called to the Garner home this past week where they found the body of 42-year-old Jon Garner, formerly of Paris.

Authorities now allege that Sandra Garner, 55, called police and said she was awakened by two gunshots and saw a masked man.

Police said they seized electronic devices from the home, and during their investigation, an internet link related to how to kill someone and not get caught was found on one of those devices.

The bullet found in Jon Garner's body matched that of a handgun found in his wife's car.
