ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A Franklin County sheriff's deputy has been served with a murder warrant charging him in the shooting death of his former wife.

Media outlets report Roanoke police served 32-year-old Jonathan Agee on Friday at his bed at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital.

He was hospitalized Monday after being shot in an Interstate 81 standoff with state troopers following the death of 30-year-old Jennifer Agee.

Jennifer Agee was shot at a Roanoke convenience store.

A search warrant issued earlier this week says Jonathan Agee found out his ex-wife told his new wife the former couple still had an ongoing relationship.
