Police: No prosecution of wife in husband's death

Updated:

PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - Prescott Valley police say a woman won't be prosecuted in the shooting death of her husband because it's been determined to have been accidental.

Police say 56-year-old Gary Wingate was fatally wounded in the torso when a shotgun discharged as his wife handed it to him at his request.

Police say the decision to not prosecute Wingate's wife in his Aug. 12 death was made after a review of all the evidence and after consultation with Yavapai County prosecutors.

The shooting occurred at the couple's home.
