Police kill wife with accidental gunshot after slipping in water bottle

A military police officer accused of the involuntary murder of his wife in Praia Grande, on the coast of São Paulo, said he accidentally shot the victim after slipping on a water bottle lying on the floor.

The incident occurred around 5:00 am last Friday, at the couple’s house, in the Maracanã neighborhood. According to authorities, the killing took place while the policeman was in his room getting ready to leave and go to work.

According to the officer’s testimony, the 23-year-old victim was shot after the suspect stepped on the water bottle and lost his balance. At that moment, the gun accidentally fired hitting the young woman.

The instant he fired, the police did not notice that the bullet had hit her, because the victim even sat down on the mattress of the bed, where he was lying.

The young woman was even taken to a hospital in Praia Grande, but she did not resist her injuries.
