An Iowa man went to a dog kennel business run by his estranged wife earlier this month and fatally shot her, police said.

Christopher Eugene Prichard was charged with first-degree murder for allegedly killing Angela Prichard, 55, at Mississippi Ridge Kennelson Oct. 8, the state Department of Public Safety said.

Christopher Prichard had a no-contact order filed against him by his wife on September and Oct. 7.

He allegedly told police he was angry at Angela for filing the order, KWQC reported.

Angela told police in the order that her husband had thrown a mug at her and slapped her in April.

Christopher allegedly admitted to police that he was arguing with her in the kennel she operated when he killed her with the shotgun. The weapon was recovered at the scene.

Christopher was scheduled for trial next month for the alleged assault on his wife, according to Jackson County Courthouse documents obtained by KPVI.

Christopher faces life in prison. He is not mentioned in Angela’s obituary.

“She was the most caring, kind hearted and loving mom, grandma, daughter, sister, aunt and friend anyone could ever ask for,” it reads. “She was taken before anyone could say goodbye, and will be forever loved and missed.”
