TIONESTA — A Butler County woman has pleaded guilty to reduced charges in the fatal shooting of her husband during a domestic dispute.

The (Oil City) Derrick reports Ruth Angert, 58, of Butler, pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated assault and involuntary manslaughter in the Nov. 17 shooting death of Larry Angert, 68.

State police say the couple argued after arriving at a hunting camp in Tionesta during which Angert told police her husband pushed her to the floor and grabbed her neck. The woman says she grabbed a gun and that it fired, hitting her husband in the cheek as they struggled for the weapon.

Angert will be sentenced by a Forest County judge on June 21.
