A man is likely to spend the rest of his life in prison after he shot and killed his wife over trouble.

Police said the shooting occurred on Sunday, October 20, at about 5:34 pm at the 1700 Oates Drive block in Mesquite, east of Interstate 635 and north of Interstate 30.

When police reacted to the shooting at the facility, they found a woman identified as 28-year-old Markate McCleary with multiple gunshot wounds. Police said McCleary was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. Her husband, Ashton Neros, 28, was arrested.

He was jailed at Mesquite Prison Sunday night on $ 100,000 bail, officials said. A Mesquita police spokesman said authorities have not established a motive for the shooting, but an investigation is ongoing.
