RIVERSIDE COUNTY, CA — A 57-year-old Riverside County man accused of fatally shooting his wife over the weekend pleaded not guilty Wednesday to murder and another charge.

Despite efforts to save her, Dunlap was pronounced dead at the scene. The sheriff’s department reported that she suffered from a single gunshot wound.

The sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit assumed the investigation, and on Sunday morning William Dunlap was arrested in the case. A possible motive in the slaying was not released.
