SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) -- Officials are trying to decide whether to file charges against a Missouri man who fatally shot his wife whiletrying 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 shotfrom 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.
I see no point in charging him. He has to live with the fact that he killed his wife for the rest of his life when he did not mean too. I would hate to have to live with that. That would be worse than prison.
