    Yeah, just doesn't sound plausable...I think this guy has a whole lot of 'splainin' to do....

    The wife is in critical condition but will survive. How she responds may tell the story.

    Re: Police chief accidentally shoots sleeping wife

    What was the case several yrs ago where the detective was on wife 3 or 4 and she died in the bathtub and one of his earlier wives had died too?

    He wasnt charged initially either, got away with it for years.

    Are you saying that you think it may have been intentional? If that's the case, I would be very surprised. A guy with his training would know how to make sure she didn't live to tell about it.

    I would think that if he wanted to kill her she would be dead. If you are gonna pull an "Accidental" shooting then you make it count.

    Whatever happens, so far we seem to have proper case handling.
    Good to know that it's being handled properly. Thanks.

    My guess is well-trained cops learn how not to shoot their spouses while sliding the gun across the bed. I.e. they learn proper gun handling. Lursa would never do this, for example, and Lursa isn't even a cop.

    Hmnmmm. Good point. So he's just incompetent at handling his gun?

    Of course, it's possible that their sex play involves holding a gun, and someone turned wrong... and he doesn't want to admit they were having wild, crazy sex.

    Since I have no idea exactly what was happening at the time of the shooting, I don't know. What I was saying was that if it was intentional, he certainly should have had the skills to make sure she didn't live to talk.

    Wild crazy sex? I don't know if I've ever heard of anyone getting shot that way- I suppose it's possible. Interesting at least lol.

    So far, proceeding as expected but there is some awkward reporting. The 911 call made it sound like she was shot twice, the later report indicated once. Saying you accidentally shot someone twice is kin to saying someone fell on a knife twice. Other circumstances are starting to come out as well. Earlier reports suggested they did not remarry, later reports confirmed that they did. We'll have to see how long it takes before more comes out but at least it is the GBI now controlling what info is released.
