MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. — A man who police say shot his wife after an argument over cigarettes has been charged with murder.

Vashon Flowers, 46,  was arraigned Monday on charges of open murder and being a habitual felony offender.

The shooting happened around Sunday morning at a home on Mona Street near the intersection of Rotterdam Avenue in Muskegon Heights.

Police say the couple recently quit smoking but got into an argument when Flowers wanted a cigarette while drinking, leading to him leaving the home. He then returned several hours later and shot his wife in the chest before running away, police say.
