Flagler County, FL-A 76-year-old woman from The Hammock in Palm Coast is in court this week for a jury trial. Flagler County Sheriff's deputies arrested 76-year-old Anna Pehota after responding to her 9-1-1 call saying that she thought she'd killed her husband and that she shot him three times. She is charged with second-degree murder.

Pehota shot and killed her husband John last September. She told an investigator that she could no longer take psychological abuse from him. Pehota's defense attorney is expected to utilize a sympathy defense.
