Police: Kingstree man kills wife in accidental shooting

(Kingstree-AP) November 29, 2006 - Kingstree police say a husband carrying his gun inside after a hunting trip appears to have accidentally shot and killed his wife as she was leaving.

Williamsburg County Coroner Harrison McKnight says 58-year-old Jane Raley died shortly after the shooting Monday morning.

Police Major Mike Graham says 56-year-old Jerry Raley was carrying his shotgun from his truck when he tripped and it went off, striking his wife.

Graham says the gun was loaded with steel shot used to hunt ducks.

He says the shooting appears accidental, but police and the State Law Enforcement Division are investigating.

Jane Raley's body has been sent to Charleston for an autopsy.
