Man shoots wife while installing satellite TV system

SEDALIA, MO. (AP) -- Officials are trying to decide whether to file charges against a Missouri man who fatally shot his wife while trying to install a satellite TV system in their home.

Thirty-four-year-old Patsy Long of Deep Water was pronounced dead Saturday evening after being shot in the chest with a .22-caliber handgun. Her husband, Ronald Long, fired the shot from the inside of their home after several unsuccessful efforts to punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means.

Henry County Sheriff's Deputies say the woman was hit by the second of two shots fired by her husband.

Investigators say a person involved in such a case normally would be charged with manslaughter, but that was up to the prosecutor.

Did it still have enough velocity to make the hole in the wall?

I don't know, had he called Skip he might have avoided getting the Sherriff involved.

I must say, this fellow is a really bad shot. You're in a room, and your goal is to shoot the wall, and you miss?

i envision her being on the roof or the outside of the wall. the story doesn't say where she was when she got shot.

Sounds like she was on the roof (outside) and the bullet went through the roof and hit her.

The people that live in Deepwater aren't the brightest. They are more like Hootie's family.

This reeks of a 'hunting accident' type of incident. The type a married person gets to get a mulligan for ONCE.

pshaw...

Like a .22 is the proper caliber for sawing holes in the house for cable wiring. Skip can attest the a .223 or 5.62mm are the proper caliber for this job.

HD wiring might require a .45 caliber. Don't use the black powder .50 cal though, because it will take days for the smoke to clear the trailer!



I guess that will teach her to nag him about making the cable work.

Damn! Why didn't I think of that. I had a .22. I had a bitch of a wife. I could be so much happier now.:(

They don't leave the same exit wound...but thanks for the caliber lesson.

If you think a plink from my Old Henry .22 lever action squirrel gun is going to be the same
as an AR.....Ok.

As with most cases... all depends on bullet selection.

Well, while the .223 is only slightly larger in diameter, it is more than twice as large in length and lead weight, additionally the powder load is considerably larger and gives the round so much more "pop" and therefore causing considerably more damage to whichever the intended target is.....
