Estranged Husband in Oklahoma Shot By Wife

Adair County, Oklahoma

From the December 19, 2008 Muskogee [Oklahoma] Phoenix:
A Westville man remained in critical condition in a Tulsa hospital Thursday from a gunshot wound to the head, Adair County Sheriff’s Investigator Jack Smithson said.

Darrel Fouse, 39, was shot after he violated a protective order and entered his rural home and allegedly began assaulting his wife, Smithson said.

Fouse’s wife, Marilyn Fouse, 39, told law enforcement her estranged husband entered the home about 2 p.m. Tuesday, hit her in the head, grabbed her arm and was assaulting her when a gun fell out of his fanny pack.

“She grabbed it and shot him,” Smithson said.

“She put a blanket over him, got her two girls (ages 11 and 14) out of their bedroom, and they ran across a field to a great-grandmother’s house.”

No charges have been filed. The shooting remains under investigation, Smithson said. An employee in the Adair County District Court Clerk’s Office said a protective order was filed Oct. 10 and that records show it was served on Darrel Fouse.
