The wife and son of a southwest Iowa man are charged with his murder following a shooting Wednesday.

Officials say 56-year-old Steven Malson of Bedford died after being shot once in the head.

Taylor County Sheriff’s deputies were called to 1509 Bent St. in Bedford on a shooting. When they arrived they found Malson had been shot. He was taken to a St. Joseph, Missouri hospital where he died.

An autopsy performed by the State Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Malson’s death a homicide.

Forty-seven-year-old Cindy Malson and 24-year-old Zachary Malson were arrested Thursday and charged with first degree murder in the case. They are being held in the Taylor County Jail.
