The fate of a Queens woman accused of killing her retired NYPD husband now lies in the hands of a jury. John Noel reports.
Jurors are deliberating at the murder trial of a woman accused of gunning down her retired police officer husband.
Barbara Sheehan has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and weapon possession.
She says she shot Raymond Sheehan in self-defense.
Sheehan says she suffered decades of physical and verbal abuse. She says he threatened to kill her, and he meant it.
Prosecutors say she was not abused. They say she was angry over her husband's infidelities.
Authorities said she fired 11 times, emptying one gun before firing six rounds from her husband's Glock.
Raymond Sheehan was shaving in the bathroom at the time.
