Spring, TX resident Audrey Deen Miller was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon yesterday after an early morning argument with her husband in the couple’s back yard. Precinct 4 Assistant Chief Mark Herman accepted Ms. Miller’s claim that she shot her husband in the abdomen after he threatened to shoot one of her cats, saying “The husband was trying to do something to the cat and the wife was just trying to protect her cat.”
The husband was taken to a hospital and arrived home later in the day, still wearing his hospital gown and unable to enter his locked home. He declined to comment to the KHOU news crew covering the story at the scene.
The cat was not hurt.
