A 43-year-old man with a history of domestic assaults was shot by his wife, who was in fear for her life after he threatened to kill her. According to local reports, the husband was in “an alcohol-fueled rage” when he threatened to kill his wife and went to retrieve his gun. Because of his violent history, the wife had every reason to believe he was going to follow through on his threat. According to online court documents, in 2009 the husband had entered an Alford plea in a separate domestic assault case, which led to him being sentenced to eight years in prison. The wife shot her husband multiple times. Both she and her husband called 9-1-1 after the shooting; the husband was on the phone when he died, according to reports. As of this writing, no charges had been filed. (KSDK.com; Farmington, Mo.; 8/10/23)
