An 85 year old from Trenton is under arrest for attempting to shoot his wife, according to lawmen.
Jones County deputies say Tommy Hoyle tried to shoot his 86-year-old wife at their home Monday night, but he missed. The couple lives on Greentown Rd. outside of Trenton.
The woman was not injured.
Hoyle went before a district judge this afternoon on charges of assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill.
He told the judge he'd been married "60 years or more." The elderly man denied trying to kill his wife, but deputies say they found the gun, a bullet hole in the bedroom near where his wife said she was standing and gun residue on Holye's hand.
The judge set the man's bond at $50,000 secured and his next court date is June 29th.
