In the Saturday, January 21, incident, Jerry Gilland reportedly killed Ellen Gilland following a pact police said the couple made several weeks ago.

In her defence, Jerry told the officers that, owing to her husband’s health issues, they had a conversation and decided that if he continued to get worse, then she should end his life, NCBC news reported.

Daytona Police Chief Jakari Young said they suspect the initial plan was for the woman to kill the husband and then turn the gun on herself but she did not succeed.

It is reported that the suspect’s husband knew the shooting would occur on the fateful day.

“Initially, I think the plan was a murder-suicide so she killed him and then she was going to turn the gun on herself but decided she couldn’t go through with it,” said Young.

Staff and patients in surrounding rooms were evacuated during the standoff. No one else was injured in the incident.

The woman will be charged with first-degree murder.
