KNOXVILLE (WATE) — A Knoxville woman pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter after the 2015 death of her husband.

Officers say in February 2015, Tina Selvidge called 911 and said that she had shot her husband at their home at Steeplechase Apartments.

Michael Selvidge was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head inside their apartment.

Tina Selvidge was sentenced to serve 10 years.

Court records show she had no record before she shot her husband, but Michael Selvidge has orders of protection filed against him for his first two wives before Tina.

In an order of protection, Michael Selvidge’s first wife stated: “He beat me up when we were in an argument. He bruised my face arms and legs. He has abused me many other times in the past.”

Michael Selvidge’s second wife, Renee Shackelford talked with WATE 6 On Your Side on the phone after the homicide.

“Mike has threatened to kill me twice and has slapped me, punched me, pulled my hair, scratched me,” said Shackelford.
