Battered wife shoots husband

(First Edition)

Acourt remanded in custody Carmela Bohbott, 40, for killing her husband after 20 years of marital abuse, AFP reports from Kyriat Shmona, Israel. She said the battering Yehuda Bohbott, 43, gave her on Friday was 'worse than usual'. She sought refuge in the bedroom of her soldier son, grabbed his rifle and returned to the living room, where Yehuda died in a hail of bullets. His wife was taken to hospital to dress the bruises and cuts all over her body.
