The retired Tyler dentist accused of murdering his wife on June 29, 2012 will be in court Monday for the beginning of his trial.
Dr. Bobby Nichols is charged with killing his wife, 71-year-old Rosalind Nichols in a shooting that shook East Texas. Police said an argument behind closed doors that evening led to Rosalind's death.
According to the arrest affidavit, Nichols got into an argument with his wife the night of June 29. The affidavit says Nichols went out to his vehicle to get his gun and went back into the residence in South Tyler. After further argument, the affidavit says he then shot Rosalind twice.
After the shooting, authorities said Dr. Nichols called 911.
"The husband stated that he had shot his wife. Officers responded to the scene, came down here and did find his wife had been shot inside the residence," Tyler Police Officer Don Martin said the night of the murder.
Nichols told police he tried to give Rosalind mouth to mouth, but saw that she was dead, so he put the gun on the couch beside her, waited 15 minutes, and then called 911. He asked for an ambulance and for the sheriff to come and get him.
He was charged with first-degree murder, and was later released on a $750,000 bond.
The trial starts six months after Nichols openly admitted to killing his wife in an interview with KLTV 7 outside of the Smith County courthouse on the same day he was indicted for the crime.
"Are you feeling OK?" he was asked. "Not really, I killed my wife," he said.
Nichols is facing a first degree murder charge. The trial is set to begin at 9 a.m. Monday.
