CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - Authorities said a woman who shot her husband in the knee won't face charges because he begged her to do it. The Arapahoe County Sheriff's office said a 35-year-old woman accused her husband of being drunk and becoming violent during an argument.

She took control of a handgun during the dispute and claimed her husband begged her to shoot him and told her to 'finish it' after she fired a shot.

The sheriff's office said the 34-year-old husband was uncooperative with deputies before he was taken into custody and hospitalized. He was now being held at the Arapahoe County jail after his wife accused him of forcing her into the bathroom and holding a gun to her head before the shooting.

He faces charges of felony menacing, third-degree assault and false imprisonment.

I think that woman may be charged at a later date in time. You see, an attorney is going to say the man was mentally ill at the time (and he probably was). It's not a crime to be mentally ill, but it is a crime to shoot the mentally ill unless your life is in danger. Once this woman had control of the gun, and the man was asking to be shot, she was then in control of the situation. She has also stated to police that she shot him because he requested it. When this gets to the D.A. it will be a different story.

ICM856, she shot him in self defense the first time but didn't shoot him a second time.
