Police: Woman Shot Boyfriend For Snoring Too Loud
A Florida woman allegedly tried to kill her boyfriend because he snored too loudly, police said.
Police said they charged Lorie Morin, 47, with attempted murder and aggravated battery after she shot him Wednesday night, ABC reported. She is being held at the Brevard County Jail without bond.
Both Morin and her boyfriend, who is not being publicly identified, initially told police that the shooting was accidental, Click Orlando reported.
Upon further investigation, officials from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office determined the shooting occurred during a domestic dispute about Morin’s boyfriend’s snoring.
As the dispute escalated, Morin grabbed a shotgun and fired at her boyfriend, striking and injuring him, police said.
Both Morin and her boyfriend had been drinking before and during the argument, police said.
“It’s so stupid, so bizarre that I can’t imagine that kind of behavior,” neighbor Robert Mason told ABC.
“I’ve talked to her a couple times and she’s always been really nice, and so the news is kind of shocking on it, honestly,” said another neighbor, Samantha Bobier. “To hear that it was over him snoring is kind of shocking. It’s kind of crazy.”
