A New Hampshire man is due in court today on assault charges after allegedly shooting his wife Saturday night in their Derry home.
Glen Gowey, 36, was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless conduct after police responded to the couple's home on Island Pond Road.
Diane Gowey suffered a single gunshot wound to the upper torso, according to N.H. Assistant Attorney General David W. Ruoff.
``We're still investigating the circumstances of what happened,'' Ruoff said yesterday.
Police were sent to the Gowey home about 7 p.m. Saturday for a reported gunshot.
Diane Gowey was taken to an unidentified hospital where she was admitted to the intensive care unit. Ruoff said her wound is life-threatening.
Ruoff asked anyone who might have information about the shooting to call Derry police at 603-432-6111.
How did it happen? Maybe it was like this....
Man: Honey, I'm home!
Woman: That's nice dear...but ssshhhh I'm in the living room watching TV.
Man: What's for dinner? I'm hungry!
Woman: I didn't have time to make dinner. There was a romance channel double feature on TV and then I fell asleep on the couch because you know chocolate makes me sleepy.
Man: What no dinner! Plus you have been eating candy all day while sitting on the couch!
Woman: Well I was hungry and I love candy!
Man: But the Doctor told you that you have to lose weigh I mean you are 5'3 and 225 pounds. Christ when I married you, you weighed 115 pounds.
Woman: Let's not argue…matter of fact I'm hungry let's go out to dinner and by the way I need more money I want to buy some new spandex pants.
Man: But, I have already given you $300 in the past two days what did you do with it?
Woman: Well, The Sweet Shoppe was having a buy 3 get 1 free sale so I bought several dozen boxes of candy…
Man: What! That's it…bang bang!!
