(Scroll down for video) An elderly man became extremely angry after his wife of 6 months refused to have sex with him, according to police in Florida.
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office said that they have arrested 76-year-old Donald Royce, after being accused of shooting 62-year-old Katherine.
Royce has been charged with one count of domestic violence.
He was booked into the Lee County jail, and his bail has been set at $100,000.
According to the criminal complaint, Royce married Katherine six months ago, and since then, she refused to have sex with him.
On Friday around 10:00 p.m., Royce asked Katherine to sleep in his bed. When she refused, he told her that she would be sorry.
Royce grabbed his gun and fired multiple shots at Katherine, hitting her in the behind. Katherine was rushed to the Lee Memorial Hospital, where she was treated and released.
Deborah, who lives in the couple’s home, witnessed the attack.
Deborah told police that she heard the couple arguing about their sleeping arrangements before the gun went off. Royce denied intending to shoot his wife, saying he only wanted to hit the mattress to scare her.
