EASTPOINTE, Mich. (WJBK) -- Christina Lazzana Webster's husband, Anthony Webster, is being held in connection to her murder, according to sources.  Meanwhile, people we spoke with said he is the last person they would suspect of doing something so awful.

"Every time [you saw] Anthony with Chris, you could see that Chris was the love of his life," said Catherine Green.

46-year-old Anthony Webster turned himself in to Eastpointe police late Saturday night hours after his wife was discovered dead inside their home.  She had been shot in the chest.

The couple owned Big Top Popcorn located in a shopping center just minutes from their home.

"He was a very nice man," said a neighbor, who wished to remain anonymous.  "I don't see how Tony could've got the best of her to do that to her without a fight."

That neighbor also said she didn't hear a thing.

Webster has no criminal history, but police believe they have enough evidence to prove he played a role in his wife's murder.

"She was very nice.  She'd come running off the porch and hug me and was glad to be in my neighborhood and be in my house," the neighbor said.

Eastpointe police are putting together all the evidence and will be passing that along to the prosecutor's office.  The suspect could be arraigned as early as Tuesday morning.
