Melissa Leigh Migliore, 38, seen at right, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to an arrest warrant. Her husband, William Migliore, told police that he had been arguing with her while she was making dinner Tuesday at their house on Tablerock Circle in Leander, the warrant said.
He said he entered the bedroom where she was lying down and told her that he had poured the meal down the sink and that she owed him an apology, the warrant said.
A short time later, Melissa Migliore stepped out of the bedroom carrying a shotgun, walked down the hallway, loaded the gun and pointed it at him, according to the warrant. She told him he had 30 seconds to leave the house or she would shoot him, the warrant said.
He left the house with his son and called 911, said the warrant. When police arrived, they found aloaded shotgun leaning against a bedroom wall buckshot rounds on the ground next to the gun, the warrant said.
Melissa Migliore, who was at the house, told police that her husband was being verbally abusive and knocking things around while they were arguing and she was making dinner, according to the warrant.
She said that when her husband told her that he had dumped the soup in the sink, she had had enough, grabbed her shotgun and loaded it, the warrant said.
She said she pointed the weapon toward the ceiling and told her husband to leave, according to the warrant. Melissa Migliore was arrested and later released from the Williamson County Jail after posting bond on a $20,000 bail.
The jury is still deliberating.
Leander is a few miles NW of Austin.
Maybe with a nice makeup job she’d be a better cook.
better to just eat the damn soup and keep quiet....
We have a soup contest here in Mount Carmel Utah every September. Last year I was the winner. One man among fifteen women entries. All the women were uglier than this little cutie so she might have a chance. LOL /s
there are many a time I would have loved to do that at work with some idiot micro managing! ha.
And to think, if SCOTUS doesn’t kill the mandate, gov’t can force us to eat broccoli. Prolly go to jail for pouring it down the drain.
No soup for you!
Tonight’s menu: Take it or Leave it, and you better not leave it.
Culinary and underwear ironing skills among wymyn have suffered greatly in recent decades.
It might have been really bad soup. I’ve heard of shotgun weddings but never shotgun soup slurping.
I am getting pretty tired of very poor English in what counts for today’s ‘journalism’.
“The gun was leaning on the bedroom wall.” But the shells were found on ‘THE GROUND’, next to the gun.
EITHER this woman has a bedroom that has no flooring, or the gun was outside, leaning against the outside bedroom wall.
GROUND means one thing!!!
FLOOR means something entirely different!!
Listen carefully to people talking today—even anchors on TV, and you will be amazed how many times these 2 words are misused!!
I am very glad that I went to a one-room school & I learned the difference.
Agreed. It’s like the media outsource their articles to be written in India.
Give it a break. They are commonly interchangeable.
Unless she's a very horrible cook, why go to the extreme of disposing of her work and then demand an apology? Not to mention wasting food that was likely going to feed his son as well.
The guy sounds like an immature jerk who deserves some buckshot in his behind.
I know that some women take it hard when their cooking efforts are not appreciated, but this may be going a little too far.
Perhaps she was just having a bad day.
What’s most amazing is that we’ve made it past the first 10 comments without a male FReeper pointing out that “Hey, at least she was in the kitchen”.
No offense to the other posters but your post is the best.
You know wives put effort into fixing meals. This dumbo obviously didn’t appreciate it.
Some years ago, my former husband didn’t bother to come home for dinner as he was out with the guys, drinking. I had fixed a great meal; mashed potatoes, pork chops, gravy etc the whole ball of wax INCLUDING hot bread.
He didn’t show up and after 5 hours or so, I put it all in one pan, mixed accordingly, went a few blocks, found his car and ...well lets say he had a surprise when he jumped in the drivers seat that nite.
Obviously this rube didn’t get it.
One of my favorites is-”I borrowed him $100” instead of “loaned him a $100”...sheesh.
And I was taught the same-a floor was indoors and a ground was outdoors...per Sister Margaret.
