The 70-year-old Huber Heights woman accidentally shot by her husband Wednesday night has died.

Mae Worthy passed away Friday at 9:38 a.m., according to Huber Heights Police.

Police said James Worthy told them he had his gun out and it accidentally discharged through the back bedroom and into the room where his wife was.

“It went through the bedroom wall down into the opposite end of the house and just happen to strike in the back of the head while she was sitting on the couch. The evidence is in line with his story as to what he’s telling us,” said Lt. Matt Dulaney.

Prosecutors will now determine if they will charge Worthy for negligence while handling a firearm.
