Cops: Man Fatally Shoots Wife After Mistaking Her For Burglar

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say a woman was shot and killed by her husband who mistook her for a prowler breaking into their Baldwin County home.

Sheriff Bill Massee called the incident a “tragedy instead of a crime.” He said the woman was shot just after 6 a.m. Friday.

Authorities say she had left for work earlier that morning but returned home for an unknown reason. The woman was pronounced dead on the scene.

Authorities have not released the identities of the husband and wife.
