Ironically, this Democrat criminal will miss her opportunity to cast her ballot for the criminal candidate Clinton.
The wife of a Fayette County commissioner who is charged with shooting him Sunday, initially said she was defending herself because he was choking her but then said the shooting occurred when she tried to kill herself and he grabbed the gun to stop her, police said.
The victim, Vincent Vicites, also gave conflicting accounts, according to an affidavit.
Deanna Vicites, 47, is accused of shooting Mr. Vicites, 55, in the neck with a .38-caliber revolver at their home on Crestvue Lane in South Union after a day during which both said they had been drinking.
He was being treated at a hospital in Morgantown, W.Va., after undergoing surgery.
She is charged with attempted homicide and other offenses and is in jail.
Although the couple gave conflicting narratives, Fayette County District Attorney Richard Bower said the shooting was deliberate. But he did not offer details or reveal a motive.
“This is absolutely not an accident,” Mr. Bower said Monday. “This is an intentional, reckless act.”
In a shocking development, this fine upstanding Democrat has a criminal record.
She has been charged with attempted homicide, along with other assault and firearm charges. Court records show Deanna plead guilty in 2002 on conspiracy to commit burglary charges.
Apparently having a criminal record is a prerequisite for advancement in the Party of Crime.
A Pennsylvania woman accused of trying to kill her husband over the weekend was one of the more than 4,500 delegates to next week’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
But Democratic Party officials say they accepted Deanna Vicites’s resignation Tuesday, and an at-large alternate was named to take her place.
Update: In case there’s any confusion, Vicites was a Clinton delegate.
The Fayette County woman accused of shooting her husband, county Commissioner Vincent Vicites, resigned her position Tuesday as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention, according to state party officials.
Deanna Vicites, 47, of South Union was charged Monday with attempted homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment for allegedly shooting her husband in the neck early Sunday.
She is being held in the Fayette County Prison on $250,000 bail.
Deanna Vicites was chosen in June by the Democratic State Committee as an at-large delegate to the convention, which will kick off Monday in Philadelphia. She was a pledged delegate to Hillary Clinton, according to records.
