LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - An attorney for a woman accused of killing her husband - who served as chief ranger for the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism - says her client was acting in self-defense.

Pamela Digman made an initial court appearance Monday morning, about 12 hours after she was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder for the Sunday shooting death of Jerry Digman.

Pulaski County District Judge Wayne Gruber set Pamela Digman's bond at $300,000, and she remained in the Pulaski County jail at midday.

Public defender Betsy Johnston said investigators told her client that the shooting appeared to be in self-defense.

Authorities say Digman worked in the law enforcement division of the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism and was a retired Arkansas state trooper.
