Pearl River woman shoots husband after he admits affair from 15 years ago

A Pearl River-area woman shot her husband twice in the back with bird shot Tuesday after he admitted to having an affair 15 years ago, authorities said.
Connie Davis and her husband began arguing about the affair after he came clean about it in the yard of their home at 37447 Earl Bennett Road about 2 p.m., St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman George Bonnett said Thursday.
After her husband's confession, Davis took a revolver chambered for .410-caliber shotgun shells and began shooting at him, Bonnett said. The gun, a model known as "The Judge," was loaded with bird-shot shells, he said.
Davis fired five shots at her husband as he ran away through their yard, Bonnett said. Davis' husband was hit in the upper and lower back by bird shot from two shells, he said.
After running away, Davis found that he didn't have a cell phone, Bonnett said. He used a two-way radio to call into his workplace and tell them that his wife was trying to kill him, he said. His coworkers then relayed the messages to the Sheriff's Office.
Connie Davis had already left when deputies arrived and found her husband sitting in a swing in his front yard, Bonnett said. Her husband was taken to the Louisiana Heart Hospital where he was treated for his injuries, which were not serious, and released, he said.
Deputies stopped Davis a short time later as she was driving on Gause Boulevard and arrested her, Bonnett said. She had a shotgun shell in her pocket and the gun on the seat next to her, he said.
Davis, 53, was booked into the St. Tammany Parish jail in Covington with attempted second-degree murder. She is being held on a $75,000 bond.
"Pretty much any time you point a loaded gun at someone and pull the trigger, it's going to be attempted murder," Bonnett said.
Men...sometimes NOT confessing is the best option. I guess he was having trouble living with it and it almost killed him.
A woman must not depend on protection by men. A woman must learn to protect herself.

You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

If I had an affair on my wife, I don't know that I'd be able to keep it secret for 15 minutes, let alone 15 years!
He's probably lucky that revolver was loaded with birdshot. Had it been a revolver with handgun ammo, he might not have faired as well. Not to say birdshot cannot kill; however, if he was at any distance (given he was running) it most likely inflicted less damage, than say a .357.
Can you imagine if he'd told her right away!
I've had friends who went through hell after confessing to/being caught in affairs. The guys who got divorced were much better off than the ones who stuck around. Hell hath nor fury, nor memory...
I wonder if she knew there was birdshot in the gun ?.
I wonder if he change the ammo out before telling her. Just in case??
Judged, by the Judge...I bet that he didn't see that coming.

Wow, sounds like this was NOT a healthy, happy marriage to begin with!
And NO MAN is worth it. There are other ways to get revenge. Living well without him comes to mind.

Closed mouth catches no flys or should I say bird shot in his case.
(I am not saying what he did was right)

Well he managed to keep that secret for 15 years and then he's the one that spilled the beans-what a dork.
I've done decided that 1st of all having an affair is stupid and second sooner or later the truth will surface.
