A Pittsburg woman has been charged with murder for killing her husband earlier this month, Contra Costa County prosecutors said Friday. Maria Vides, 39, was charged for allegedly shooting her husband Paul Shatswell, 45, on March 16.

Shatswell was the principal of the Pittsburg Unified School District’s adult education program.

Shatswell died Sunday, about a week after he was shot at the couple’s home on Barrie Drive in Pittsburg, according to police. The couple has eight children, ranging from 6 to 29 years old.
