ANCHORAGE, Alaska - An Army specialist has been arrested in the shooting death of his wife.

KTUU reports (http://is.gd/g9UCED) 24-year-old David Lopez has been charged with first- and second-degree murder, terroristic threatening and resisting arrest after the shooting death of his wife, Sara Lopez.

Charging documents say David Lopez also threatened to kill social workers who took his daughter away Wednesday after a report of child abuse.

The documents say shortly after that call, he called police from their East Anchorage apartment, saying he thought he had shot his wife. The documents allege he said he shot her because she was responsible for their daughter being "taken away."

Responding medics declared Sara Lopez dead at the scene. Police said among the many weapons in the home was an AK-47 style rifle.
