The 85-year-old Angola man charged with shooting his 81-year-old wife will undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
The order stems from an icident earlier this year when police responded to a shooting at a home in the 1500 block of Henney Street in Angola on August 31. One that day, officers were met at the door of the house by Samuel Ford. According to police he said he shot his wife Dorsey. She was found in the garage of the home suffering from apparent, non-life threatening, gunshot wounds.
Samuel Ford was formally charged with Attempted Murder in court the following day.
According to court records, he was back in court on last week, where a psychiatric evaluation was ordered.
Further hearings were put on-hold pending expert opinions.
