COQUILLE, Ore. -- Court documents filed by police in the slaying of a North Bend woman say her husband admitted to shooting her.

Wayne Raymond Hagner was arraigned Monday in Coos County Circuit Court on a charge of murder in the death last week of Anna Lee Hagner in the couple's home.

The World newspaper reports that an affidavit filed by police says friends from church visited the couple Friday, and one of them, a retired psychiatric nurse, asked Hagner if he was hearing voices.

The affidavit says Hagner replied that he was, took a gun out of a drawer and fired one shot into the floor and another toward the kitchen, where his wife was.

The couple left and called police, who found Anna Lee Hagner dead.
