Kentucky: No Charges in Deadly Shooting

Pulaski County, Kentucky

From WTVQ of August 13, 2008
No Charges in Deadly Shooting

No charges have been filed against a Pulaski County woman who police say shot and killed her husband after the two got in a domestic confrontation.

The shooting happened early Wednesday morning on Highway 196 in the Nancy community.

Investigators with the Sheriff's Department say 48-year-old Tamara Wilson got a gun and shot her husband, 49-year-old William, after an argument escalated.

Mr. Wilson was taken to the hospital where he later died.

During its investigation, the Sheriff's Department found a history of domestic violence in this family - including a prior charge of domestic assault in 2006 and at least two prior domestic violence orders that had been issued against Mr. Wilson.

Investigators also say Mr. Wilson had made threats against his wife leading up to the shooting.

Because of this information, not charges have been filed, but the results of this investigation will be presented to the Pulaski County Grand Jury for their consideration.
