VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A Vancouver man is accused of murdering his wife.

Vancouver police have not yet released the names of the man or the woman in this case, but confirmed they were married and called this a domestic violence crime.

Officers first responded to the house at 3414 NE 83rd Ave. for a welfare check Monday night.

When they arrived, police made phone contact with a man inside, who said he was suicidal and armed with a gun.

After the man stopped communicating with police, officers entered the home and found the woman's body.

The man was taken into custody and booked into the Clark County Jail on the charge of murder Tuesday.
