Wife Charged With Shooting Husband In Face

A Kentucky woman now faces murder charges after police say she shot her husband of 22 years in the face.

57-year-old Janice Hasch of Bullitt County reportedly called police on Monday night to tell them about the shooting.

Her husband, Jerry, was taken to the hospital in Louisville where he later died.

Janice Hasch was arraigned on assault charges on Tuesday morning. She pleaded not guilty, but those charges have since been upgraded to murder.

Neighbors say the couple had a history of domestic issues, but had never been physically violent.

    ky use to be a safe place to live. but drugs are taking it over. now all you see on the news is some one getting killed or killing a kid..sad world we live in. i think the law is not doing the job i say give them life in prison with hard labor. or hang them in the street, get rid of murders for good.

    Ok I dont mean to make light of a loss of possibly innocent human life but anyone see the irony? Shot in Bullitt County? (Also before anyone mentions yes I know how to spell bullet.)
