An Oklahoma City man jailed on a murder complaint told police he and his wife were playing a fantasy sex game when he accidentally shot her to death.

Rebecca Sedille, 50, was found with a gunshot wound to the head at 1304 Fleetwood Drive about 9 p.m. Dec. 21. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police arrested her husband, Arthur John Sedille, 23.

A probable cause arrest affidavit filed in Canadian County states Arthur Sedille told investigators he and his wife often engaged in sexual fantasy involving a gun.

Arthur Sedille told police he took a handgun from a shelf beside the bed and “racked the slide back causing the gun to cock,” the affidavit states. He said he placed the gun to her head and the gun discharged. He said he did not realize the gun was loaded, according to the affidavit.

Paul Hesse, Canadian County assistant district attorney, said charges had not been filed Monday. He said Oklahoma City police had not submitted a report on the incident to his office.

A state medical examiner's office spokeswoman said Rebecca Sedille died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Arthur Sedille remained in the Oklahoma County jail Monday, a jailer said.
