Husband accused of killing his bride

A newlywed accused of killing his bride and kidnapping a friend surrendered to deputies after a six-hour standoff Thursday. Investigators say Charles Edwin Duke, 23, shot Felicia Fine Duke, 22, in an argument at their Cedar Key home, then fled with a friend who was staying with them. The friend, Justin White, secretly sent a text message to the victim's sister. Duke called the sheriff himself, saying he had a hostage. Duke asked to speak with his father, then gave up after they talked.
