Kansas woman convicted of husband’s shooting death

ST. JOHN, Kan. (AP) – A south-central Kansas woman has been convicted of fatally shooting her husband last year.

The Kansas Attorney General’s Office says that jurors found 36-year-old Misty Salem guilty Friday of one count of second-degree intentional murder in the death of 41-year-old Samuel Salem at the couple’s Stafford home in March of last year.

Police who responded to reports of gunfire found Samuel Salem on the living room floor with a gunshot wound. He died at the scene.

Samuel Salem’s death was the first homicide in more than 20 years in the 1,000-resident town.

Misty Salem’s sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 25.
