Woman Takes The Stand In Her Own Defense

A Rusk County woman, accused of fatally shooting her husband last September, took the stand today in her own defense.

Sharon Daniels told jurors today her husband, David Daniels, had serious financial problems that created tension in their marriage.  She also said he threatened her the night she shot him three times.

But prosecutors say David was asleep that night and did not threaten her life, showing that the shooting was not self-defense.

The case is expected to go to the jury tomorrow.
