- Husband Killed in Fight About Goats?
Fri Jun 13!
OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - An Eldon, Oklahoma, woman has been charged
with shooting her husband dead after an argument over who should feed
the couple's goats, police said on Thursday.
Authorities charged Pearl Lynne Smith, 47, with first-degree murder
for the death of her husband, Thomas Smith, 51. Sheriff's deputies
responded to a domestic disturbance call at the couple's rural
eastern Oklahoma home on Tuesday and found the husband dead, shot
once through the chest.
"We were told that what prompted this disagreement was her failure to
feed the goats," Cherokee County Undersheriff Dan Garber said.
Garber said the wife pointed a 9 mm pistol at her husband and
demanded that he go feed the goats. Thomas Smith then dared his wife
to shoot him, Garber said. When he took a step toward Pearl, she
killed him with a single shot, Garber added.
The two had a history of domestic trouble, Garber said, and the
argument over feeding the goats was the breaking point.
"Something like that is the trigger that unlocks something deeper,"
Pearl Smith is in jail on $100,000 bail, pending her arraignment on
Friday, court officials said. She could face the death penalty if
there is more to this story than meet the eye, thats for sure.
only an idjit would make a threatening move to a well-armed goat mama.
