Salem, OR – A 47-year-old woman in Oregon has been charged with attempted murder after she used her Ford F-150 to run down her husband.
Shirley Nunez suspected that her husband, Kenneth, was having an affair with a woman who lived nearby. So on Monday night, Shirley broke into the home of her husband’s alleged mistress and confronted the woman, pointing a gun at her in the process.
No details on what was discussed, but Shirley did not physically injure the woman and left the residence in her 2003 Ford F-150. Kenneth was not nearly as lucky. When Shirley got back home, she saw her husband walking to his motorcycle parked in front of their house and decided to give him a kiss with her truck’s grill.
Bill Deconcini said he and his wife woke up after hearing screaming and the two came outside to find Kenneth unconscious in the grass after Shirley had ran him down with her truck. He was transported to Salem Hospital in critical condition while Shirley was taken to the hospital for a medical evaluation before being booked into the Marion County Jail.
She is now facing charges of attempted murder, first-degree assault, first degree burglary, menacing, pointing a firearm at another person and unlawful use of a weapon. Kenneth has served as an officer with the Salem Police Department since 2005, but was off duty when he was turned into a speed bump.
“I think she went a bit overboard no matter if he had a girlfriend or not,” Deconcini told reporters while his wife probably stood behind him with a small grin on her face.
