FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (Arizona Daily Sun) — A judge has released a woman accused of fatally shooting her husband ahead of trial after her lawyers claimed self-defense.
The Arizona Daily Sun reported that Casey Dark was charged with second-degree murder in the death of her 45-year-old husband Joshua Dark stemming from a domestic violence incident in December at their home east of Flagstaff.
Prosecutors say Casey Dark escalated a fight between herself and her husband when she brought a gun. But her lawyers say her husband had a history of violence. Judge Ted Reed decided to release Dark under the condition she appear at all court hearings. A trial date is currently scheduled for February 2021.
