A Democratic delegate has been accused of trying to kill her husband, a week before she was set to back Hillary Clinton for president at the party’s National Convention.
Mother-of two Denna Vicites, 47, was arrested and charged with attempted murder after she allegedly shot her other half, Vincent, in the neck during a drunken argument in their Uniontown, Pennsylvania, home on Sunday.
When she was interviewed by police, she told officers it was an accident.
But she later changed her story and said she fired at her Fayette County commissioner husband when he was choking her, claiming he had been abusive for a long time.
But then she insisted she was trying to kill herself, and then accidentally shot him when he tried to take the weapon from her, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.
