TIONESTA, Pennsylvania — A northwestern Pennsylvania woman has been acquitted of murder but found guilty on a lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter in the death of her husband at the couple's hunting camp.
The Butler Eagle (http://bit.ly/1jresKy ) reports that a jury returned the verdict Friday against 59-year-old Ruth Maxine Angert, of Butler.
State police alleged that Angert fatally shot her husband Larry after the couple argued at their hunting camp in Tionesta on Nov. 17, 2012.
Angert testified in her own defense at the two-day trial, claiming her husband pushed her to the floor and grabbed her around the neck, and that his revolver fired accidentally.
