A wife of a British man allegedly shot him dead in front of their young son in an effort to “frighten” him.

It is said that 43-year-old yacht salesman Christopher Benjamin Martin had been drinking with his partner Maria Ixel Amador all day when he was slain.

After purportedly getting into an argument with Amador in their Costa Rican residence, the father was shot once in the right shoulder and later died as a result.

Local accounts state that Christopher and Marlin, his son who is eight years old, were nearby when they were shot after drinking all day.

Amador, a 36-year-old Nicaraguan, reportedly told to police that he shot Christopher following a dispute “to intimidate him.”

Devastated pals and loved ones say there are “shocked” by the dad’s death.

Colleague Derek Boccara wrote on Facebook: “Sad. I really liked Chris Fun and genuine. A big lost. Crazy life.

“I have a hard time with this. He was a friend. We are all shocked.

“In peace may he rest now. Poor guy.”

Toni Michelle Lee, a relative of Christopher’s, wrote: “Please say a prayer for my oldest son Gavin and his dad’s side of the family.

“Gavin’s uncle Chris was taken from us on Sunday.

“Please send love and prayers to the family to guide them thru this tough time.
