(Newser) – Couples that do meth together, don't stay together—in at least one instance. Police in Pennsylvania have charged 31-year-old Trista Zickefoose in the shooting death of her husband, reports WJAC. The AP reports that they had smoked meth Sunday night, then argued; about 11:40pm she heard a noise and retrieved a 9mm pistol from beneath her pillow, thinking there was an intruder in their Knox Dale home.

At this point, 40-year-old Greg Zickefoose advanced on her, trying to get the gun away. Trista Zickefoose told cops she fired one warning shot; when he continued to advance, she fired another that killed him, reports WTAJ. Reports vary as to whether she recognized her husband. She's jailed on a charge of criminal homicide.
