MS man mistakes wife for deer, shoots and kills her

JASPER COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A Jones County woman was shot to death when her husband apparently mistook her for a deer while hunting.

Authorities said the couple was squirrel hunting Saturday afternoon and became separated near Heidelberg in Jasper County. 

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks is investigating the case with assistance from the Jasper County's Sheriffs Office.

Neither group will release the names of those involved.
