No charges for man who killed wife in TV mishap
SEDALIA, Mo. – Prosecutors are not expected to file charges against a Missouri man who fatally shot his wife while he was trying to install a satellite TV system in their home.
Henry County investigators ruled that Patsy Long’s March 22 death was accidental. Her husband, Ronald Long, fired his .22 caliber pistol from inside their Deepwater home after he couldn’t punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means.
The sheriff’s office said the 34-year-old woman was hit in the chest by the second of two shots.
Henry County Prosecuting Attorney Richard Shields said his office does not expect to press charges.
