    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.
