A 77-year-old Dolan Springs man has been arrested on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Last Wednesday, deputies responded to a residence where a woman had been shot. The 23-year-old victim had been shot in her left arm.
The woman said she went to the suspect's house to do some house cleaning. She said that 77-year-old Winfred Millard Murphy became upset when she asked him for payment.
The victim explained that Murphy grabbed her by the hair and they struggled -- and Murphy grabbed a pistol and shot her, according to the Mohave County Sheriff's Office.
She was airlifted to Sunrise Medical Center in Las Vegas and deputies contacted Murphy at his residence.
At first, he refused to come out. Eventually he left his home where he was taken into custody.
Murphy was booked into the Mohave County Jail for aggravated assault.
