Nashville TN May 29 2010 Metro Police officer Deon Cartmell was arrested Friday after he was indicted in the death of his wife.
Cartmell, 23, had said that his wife, Shari, 24, shot herself while the two were sitting on the living room couch on March 16 in their home on Saunders Avenue in Madison.
An investigation by Metro detectives Charles Robinson and Norris Tarkington found that Cartmell’s account of his wife’s death did not match the evidence, according to a police news release.
The gun used in the shooting was owned by Deon Cartmell and was not his service weapon.
Cartmell had been a police officer in the East Precinct for less than a year at the time of his wife’s death. He graduated from the police academy in July 2009 and was decommissioned on March 17.
He has been placed on administrative assignment and was in jail Friday night.
