Authorities say a Van Zandt County man has been arrested for allegedly fatally shooting his wife after finding her at the home of another man.

Forty-four-year-old Larry Maples of Ben Wheeler was charged with murder Sunday. He was being held at the Van Zandt County jail.

Sheriff Lindsey Ray says 34-year-old Heather Maples was pronounced dead at the home near Canton, 60 miles east of Dallas.

Also shot was 47-year-old Moses Clemente. He was listed in critical condition at a hospital but is expected to recover.

Ray says the shooting occurred about 6 a.m. Sunday after Larry Maples saw his wife's vehicle at the home and entered through an unlocked door. Maples called 911 after the shooting.

Ray says Heather Maples and Clemente had a relationship before she married Larry Maples.
