Don't Bogart That Tax Refund

Woman Shoots at Husband Who Won't Share Tax Money:

A fight over tax money will lead to charges of attempted murder in Pine Lawn.

Police say a woman followed her husband to work at a barber shop on Natural Bridge Saturday morning. She wanted him to give her some of their tax return money. When the man refused, she tried to shoot him. The bullet went through a window of the couples SUV. The man ducked inside the back seat of the vehicle and police say that's when the woman shot two more times. Both of those bullets also missed. The man jumped out of the back seat and ran across the road.

Investigators say the woman then went into the city of St. Louis and threw the gun in a sewer. Police contacted the woman a short time later and she turned herself in. Police say she didn't seem sorry.

"She felt more than justified. She cooperated very well, with the reasoning why she fired the shots, as well as recovering the gun. She said she didn't want a child to find the gun in the sewer," says Daniel O'Conner, the Assistant Chief of Police for Pine Lawn.
