Wife Facing Charges For Husband's Death

Police in Laurel County say they got a call early Sunday morning, from Rosalee Karr. She told dispatchers that she had just shot her husband.
The shooting happened at a home near London.
Whey police arrived, they found David Karr shot in the stomach.
He later died at the hospital.
Investigators say the shooting was done on purpose, but Rosalee Karr's mother says that's not the case.
"She said David took the gun, and pointed it toward his stomach, and told her to pull the trigger," Rosella Sergent said. "She did because she thought the gun was empty."
Rosalee Karr now faces murder charges.
She's scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Laurel County.

    They were both drinking, and When you are drunk accidents do happen. I'm just truly sorry that something this serious happened. Rosalee loved her husband and would not have killed him on purpose, this much I know.

    My husband and I send our sympathy to the parents and children of David Karr. His father and grandfather were our good friends. We cannot imagine their grief! Parents should never have to bury their children. God bless.

    Was this guy alert when the cops arrived? Was he in a coma state? Could he tell the police or anyone what may have happened? Maybe both of them thought the gun was empty. I could have been an accident. Lets hope for the children's sake that it was, but if it wasn't then I suppose everyone knows what will happen from here!
