Dallas woman shot, common-law spouse held
DALLAS, TX — Dallas police say a woman who was shot three times in the back has survived surgery and her common-law husband faces charges.
Police say the couple's twin 4-year-old boys were at the home but not hurt during the nearly three-hour standoff that ended Sunday night when the suspect surrendered.
Police say 32-year-old Ruben Obregon is held on an aggravated assault charge. Online jail records Monday did not immediately list details on Obregon's case or any attorney for him.
Dallas police initially said 33-year-old Maria Martinez was shot six times, but investigators later determined that she had been shot three times.
Martinez, who managed to get to a nearby apartment after being shot, was hospitalized in critical condition.
