RUSTON, La. (AP) - Ruston police have arrested a 74-year-old man accused of fatally shooting a woman.

The News-Star reports Carl Davis was booked Wednesday into the Lincoln Parish Detention Center on a charge of second-degree murder.

Lt. Tim Parker said Davis claimed he shot his companion, 76-year-old Vergie Page, after an argument.

Parker said Page was taken to the Northern Louisiana Medical Center and was later pronounced dead.

He said Davis was taken into custody without incident.

It could not be determined if Davis has an attorney.
