According to prosecutors, 38-year-old Emily Wilson, of Sangerville,fired a gun in her bedroom during an argument with her husband, who she suspected was having an affair. According to WPXI-TV, Wilson was shooting at her husband.

She now faces charges of domestic violence, reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence assault, the Bangor Daily News reported.
Wilson, a high school teacher, evidently did not have time to change after the April 18 incident. In her mugshot, she is still wearing the “Stop Domestic Violence” shirt.
During the dispute, Wilson waved a loaded .45-caliber handgun before firing a shot into the mattress of the bed she and her husband share, District Attorney, R. Christopher Almy, told the Daily News.
The husband, who later claimed that his wife also grabbed his wrist during the altercation, called the police.
Wilson is due to appear in court June 6. If convicted of the domestic violence reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon charge, she faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000, according to the Daily News. If convicted of the domestic violence assault charge, Wilson faces up to a year in prison and a fine of up to $2,000.
She is currently out on bail until her June 6 hearing at the Piscatquis County Judicial Center.
