An FBI agent is charged with second-degree murder in his wife's death.

An FBI agent in Stafford County is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of his estranged wife, reports the Associated Press.

The Free Lance-Star reports that Arthur "Art" Gonzales told dispatchers he killed 42-year-old Julia Serna Gonzales in self-defense. In a call to emergency dispatchers, Gonzales said he shot his wife after she attacked him with a knife, cutting him on the arm.

Gonzales, 43, surrendered to authorities on Friday and is being held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bail.

Gonzales works as a supervisory special agent-instructor at the bureau's National Academy at Quantico.
