Posted: Updated:

PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) -- Prescott Valley police say a woman won't be prosecuted in the shooting death of her husband because it's been determined to have been accidental.
 
Police say 56-year-old Gary Wingate was fatally wounded in the torso when a shotgun discharged as his wife handed it to him at his request.
 
Police say the decision to not prosecute Wingate's wife in his Aug. 12 death was made after a review of all the evidence and after consultation with Yavapai County prosecutors.
 
The shooting occurred at the couple's home.
