NORTH AUGUSTA, SC (WFXG) -

A 20-year-old woman is facing a murder charge after North Augusta officers say she shot and killed her husband Tuesday morning at their apartment.

Terry Cook is accused of shooting her husband, 21-year-old Dakota Cook, in the head around 10:30 a.m. at North Augusta Gardens, Lt. Tim Thornton said. 

Four children were in the home at the time of the shooting: a 4-month-old, a 1-year-old, a 3-year-old and a 4-year-old, Thornton said. The children were unharmed and are now in the custody of their grandparents. 

Dakota Cook was pronounced dead at Georgia Regents Medical Center, Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton said. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning in Newberry, S.C.

Terry Cook is being held at the North Augusta Department of Public Safety awaiting transport to the Aiken County Detention Center, Thornton said.

The S.C. Law Enforcement Division, the Aiken County Coroner's Office and the North Augusta Department of Public Safety are investigating the case.
