One woman is behind bars accused of assaulting and threatening her husband with a handgun.

Britany Wilkinson, 28, is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (family violence).

Back on Friday, officers were called out to the 8600 block of Harvard Ave. in reference to a domestic dispute.

When officers arrived, they spoke with a 29-year-old man and Wilkinson.

Police said an investigation revealed that after Wilkinson and her husband got into an argument, Wilkinson punched her husband several times in the face.

That's when, police said, Wilkinson retrieved a firearm and pointed it at her husband while threatening to kill him.

Wilkinson was later arrested and taken to the Ector County Detention Center.
