A Fort Bliss woman was jailed, accused of shooting her husband because she did not want him to divorce her, according to court documents.
Arely Bridgette Ruiz is currently being held without bond, jail records show. She was charged with intent to commit murder and assault resulting in serious bodily injury.
According to court documents, Ruiz took her husband, Luis Manuel Beltran to William Beaumont Medical Center last Thursday. Ruiz told hospital staff that her husband had shot himself.
Beltran told investigators that he was sitting on the edge of the bathtub in the bathroom cleaning his sandals when he heard a bang and felt pain. Beltran noticed that he had been shot and fell into the bathtub, court documents state.
Beltran said he tried to crawl out of the bathtub when he noticed Ruiz standing over him, pointing a gun toward him. Beltran told investigators that he begged her not to shoot him again. Ruiz continued to point the gun at him and then pushed him back into the bathtub, according to court documents.
