Roxboro Woman Charged With Attempted Murder Of State Trooper's Wife

— Roxboro authorities have made an arrest stemming from the shooting of a wife of a state trooper.

Linda Strickland Lee was arrested early Tuesday morning on attempted murder charges. Lee is the woman who Trooper Bobby Regan had been staying with during his separation from his wife, Daneille. Daneille Regan was shot in the chest through a bathroom window about 2 a.m. Thursday while drying off after a shower.

"She didn't see it coming. That's the dastardly thing about it. She didn't even see it coming," said Chief Terry Hill, of the Roxboro Police Department.

Police contacted Lee's attorney and her attorney made arrangements for her to turn herself in. Police know the motive, but they are not releasing those details.

Hill said he believed test results will indicate that one of three guns recovered from Lee's home was used in the shooting. He said all three guns belong to Bobby Regan.

Bobby Regan was found at Lee's home hours after the shooting. He is currently on paid leave until authorities finish their investigation.

Daneille Regan has since been released from the hospital. Her brother said she is physically doing well.

Lee is in the Person County Jail under a $1 million bond. Police say other arrests are likely.
