Wife Accused of Shooting Pa. County Commissioner

The wife of a western Pennsylvania county commissioner is accused of shooting her husband in the neck at their home.

Deanna Vicites, 47, was charged Sunday with attempted homicide and related offenses in the shooting of Vincent Vicites.

Officials say Vincent Vicites was flown to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia.

Vicites was in stable condition, District Attorney Richard Bower told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

No one responded to a knock at the couple's home from the newspaper. It wasn't immediately clear if Vicites had an attorney to comment on her behalf.

Vincent Vicites, a Democrat from Uniontown, served four terms as a Fayette County commissioner from 1996 to 2011.

He ran again for the board last year and won a seat in November.
