    Man shoots wife while installing satellite TV system

    SEDALIA, MO. (AP) -- Officials are trying to decide whether to file charges against a Missouri man who fatally shot his wife while trying to install a satellite TV system in their home.

    Thirty-four-year-old Patsy Long of Deep Water was pronounced dead Saturday evening after being shot in the chest with a .22-caliber handgun. Her husband, Ronald Long, fired the shot from the inside of their home after several unsuccessful efforts to punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means.

    Henry County Sheriff's Deputies say the woman was hit by the second of two shots fired by her husband.

    Investigators say a person involved in such a case normally would be charged with manslaughter, but that was up to the prosecutor.

    I find 7.62x39 works better for putting holes in exterior walls, plus its just about the right size hole for a coax cable.

    So wait. He was unsuccessful punching a hole through the wall using any other means, yet a .22 had enough power to go through and then kill his wife? This guy needs some better tools.

    This isn't that bad of an idea.
    Hilti guns are powered by .22 shorts.
