FREDERICK -- A Woodsboro man has been arrested by Frederick County sheriff's deputies and charged with the fatal shooting of his wife in their home early yesterday. After someone made what was described as an "alarming phone call" from a house on Wood Street about 12:15 a.m. yesterday and was disconnected, deputies worked with the cell phone company to trace the call's origin, according to a news release by Cpl. Jennifer Bailey, a sheriff's department spokeswoman. After deputies arrived at the house more than an hour later and were setting up a perimeter, a man left the house and told them an injured person was inside.
