PENN VALLEY (CBS13) – An 82-year-old man has been arrested on a charge of murder after a woman was found dead in a Penn Valley home.

Tuesday morning, the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called to the 11000 block of Sierra Circle to investigate a reported shooting. No one answered the door at the home, so deputies forced their way in.

Inside, the body of 67-year-old Sandra Sue Lebarron was found in the master bedroom.

Steuber was booked at Wayne Brown Correctional Facility. Lebarron’s exact cause of death has not been released at this time.
