    PA - Wife shoots Fayette Co. commissioner in home

    http://www.post-gazette.com/local/so...s/201607180100

    Depression, drinking, and a .38:

    "The wife of a Fayette County commissioner who is charged with shooting him Sunday, initially said she was defending herself because he was choking her but then said the shooting occurred when she tried to kill herself and he grabbed the gun to stop her, police said.

    The victim, Vincent Vicites, also gave conflicting accounts, according to an affidavit.

    Deanna Vicites, 47, is accused of shooting Mr. Vicites, 55, in the neck with a .38-caliber revolver at their home on Crestvue Lane in South Union after a day during which both said they had been drinking.

    He was being treated at a hospital in Morgantown, W.Va., after undergoing surgery.


    She is charged with attempted homicide and other offenses and is in jail.

    Although the couple gave conflicting narratives, Fayette County District Attorney Richard Bower said the shooting was deliberate. But he did not offer details or reveal a motive."


    According to a tenant who lives in the home, he heard the gunshot AFTER husband was already yelling "Help, call 911!" Ooops. Fayette County is pretty big. Depending on where State Police where when they got the call, it could take some time to get from one place to another. When they arrived, she was "curled up outside the house", gun was in yard, and shot husband was inside.

    This woman apparently is/was an elected delegate to the upcoming Democratic Convention. They said on the news earlier that she is not going to make it to the Convention and was expected to resign as an Elector later this afternoon.


    Edited to add: She resigned.

    Wife of Fayette County commissioner will head to trial on charges she shot her husband

    Deanna Vicites was ordered held on all charges related to the shooting of her husband, Vincent Vicites. State police said Deanna Vicites used her husband .38-caliber revolver to shoot him in the neck inside their South Union Township home in July.
    During a preliminary hearing on Tuesday, Vincent Vicites testified that he had asked his wife to turn down loud music in the next room so they did not disturb their downstairs tenant.
    I think now she sees that the writing is on the wall. I think he sees that the writing is on the wall, and I think that's why he changed his story."
