DEEPWATER, Mo. -- Officials were trying Tuesday to decide whether to file charges against a Missouri man who fatally shot his wife while trying to install a satellite TV system in the bedroom of their home.
Patsy Long, 34, of Deepwater, died after being shot in the chest with a .22-caliber handgun on Saturday. 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 said the woman was hit by the second of two shots fired by her husband.

Interesting way to commit murder. This may be a first.
If that man doesn’t deserve a Darwin Award, I don’t know who does.
“Alright, you stand on the outside and tell me where the bullet comes out.”
You might be a redneck if.....
Buy a drill with drill bit. Drill hole. Even I could figure that out. Always use the right tool for the job.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t qualify. You have to take yourself out of the gene pool. Now, whether or not he should be promoted to full recipient status, that’s another story...
Guns don’t kill people, satellite TV does.
Hmmm... he missed the first time?
Nah, he just wanted to be sure that the hole was big enough...
Who needs a drill? We don’t need no stinkin’ drill!
Redneck Drill: 22 cal gun?
Ok, assuming that she knew what he was doing, she was astoundingly of less understanding of physics than even her husband. A tragic story for those close to the situation. May God grant comfort to her loved ones at this time.
“Nail gun, real gun...hell, what’s the difference?”
Guess I should stop using a bullet to open my beer bottles
Would be interesting to determine (if possible) the size of the hole after firing the first shot.
Idiot. I always have my wife wear a kevlar vest.
Maybe he can get a job as an airline captain.
I never use anything less than .38 wadcutters to run coax.
