While police were at the home, officers were told by Sherry Fitzpatrick that she found her husband unresponsive on the floor the morning after having an argument. According to police, Sherry Fitzpatrick told police she slept in a separate room following the argument.

Officers did not find a gun next to the man, but police were able to locate a handgun in a nightstand drawer in the bedroom. Police said their homicide investigation ended during an Aug. 10 interview with Timothy Fitzpatrick’s wife where she “provided a revised statement” about his death.

Records show Sherry Fitzpatrick was booked into the Volusia County Jail after being treated at a medical facility.

The department said the case is expected to be presented before a grand jury at some point.
