An Upper Bucks County woman is accused of shooting and killing her husband. Pennsylvania State Police say 49-year-old Dorleen Burklund allegedly shot her 47-year-old husband Michael several times in the back late Sunday afternoon following an argument at their home on Mink Road in the Kintnersville section of Springfield Township. No information has been released on what they were arguing about, but neighbors say they were having marital problems and they were in the process of getting a divorce. She is being held without bail at the county prison, and Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler says she faces a first degree murder charge. He says it was a willful and deliberate killing.
