A Denver woman was allegedly shot to death by her own husband while on the phone with police after she said he consumed marijuana edibles and began hallucinating.

Kristine A. Kirk clung to her phone with a 911 dispatcher for nearly 15 minutes before her final scream was accompanied by a piercing gunshot late Monday night, NBC reported.

When officers arrived at the 44-year-old's home they reported finding the mother of three dead at the scene after suffering a gunshot wound to the head.

Her husband, Richard Kirk, 47, was taken into custody on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Richard Kirk had allegedly been "talking about the end of the world and [saying] he wanted her to shoot him," moments before she was killed, 9News reported.

Kristine Kirk allegedly told dispatch that her husband had consumed marijuana and was hallucinating while scaring their young children whom police confirmed to the Daily News were at the scene.

As she remained on the line with police her husband reportedly fetched a gun from a gun safe.

Authorities are now investigating whether Richard Kirk had indeed consumed some kind of drug, such as marijuana, prior to Monday night's shooting. They are also reportedly reviewing the length of time it took to respond to her 911 call.

9News reported that Richard Kirk has one prior arrest in Douglas County for driving under the influence and careless driving.

While in the backseat of a patrol car he allegedly confessed to shooting his wife.

He made his first court appearance Wednesday and is being held without bond
