HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. -

A Hendersonville woman who was injured in a shooting at her home last week died of her injuries Tuesday morning.

According to a news release, Ashlee Cundiff, 26, died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center just before 2 a.m.

Metro police responded to her home on La Sabre Drive February 13 following an alleged accidental shooting.

"Once the officers got there, they observed some inconsistencies in what was told to them versus what was found on the scene," said Sgt. Jim Vaughn with the Hendersonville Police Dept.

Police initially charged her husband, Joseph Cundiff, with aggravated assault for the shooting. Charges against him have been upgraded to first degree murder.

Police told Nashville's News 2 the couple's two young children, ages three and six, were in the home at the time of the shooting.

"I'm sure they will need some sort of counseling in the future.  They'll need someone to monitor their behavior because they were in the home.  This is their mother, and their mother was shot and killed in their home," said Sgt. Vaughn.

The children are currently staying with grandparents.

Police have not released a motive for the shooting.

Joseph Cundiff is being held without bond.

He is expected to appear in court March 27.
