Police on Saturday announced the arrest of a suspect in a Cairo homicide.

Chauncy M. Hughes, 30, was wanted in connection with the death of his wife, Heather N. Davis, 22.

Davis was found by Cairo police after they responded to an 8:30 p.m. call at 733 35th St. in the city Friday.

She was taken to St. Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau, Mo., for treatment of a gunshot wound. Davis was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police obtained an Alexander County arrest warrant charging Hughes with first-degree, and they asked for the public’s help locating him.
