NY Woman Shot to Death as Husband Was Cleaning Gun, Police Say

An upstate New York woman was killed in an apparent accident when a shot discharged as her husband was cleaning his gun, police say.

Ashley Rosenbrock, 34, was shot Thursday night in her home in Corinth, New York state police said. She was pronounced dead at Saratoga Hospital.

Police said Saturday that Rosenbrock's 35-year-old husband, Eric Rosenbrock, was "performing maintenance" on his legally owned handgun when it went off.

The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports that Eric Rosenbrock is a science teacher in the Lake George school district and the father of three young children with his wife. The couple had an 18-month-old daughter who died from an infection five years ago.
