A Bermuda Dunes man is behind bars on suspicion of fatally shooting his 63-year-old wife in their home. Riverside County sheriff's investigators arrested Garey Smith, 55, shortly after arriving at the home in the 41000 block of Trinity Circle.

Deputies were sent to the home on unincorporated territory just east of Palm Springs to investigate a domestic violence report. When they arrived, they found Sandra Smith had been shot to death.

Smith is being held at the Indio Jail in lieu of $1.5 million bail.
