PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania woman charged with criminal homicide for allegedly shooting her husband hours after he got a protection-from-abuse order has been ordered to stand trial.

Allegheny County police say 55-year-old Patricia Katchur shot her husband May 13. Katchur had been living with her sister since the couple fought four days before, but she had returned to their McKeesport home to get some belongings earlier that day.

McKeesport police allowed her into the home after 52-year-old Christopher Katchur refused. After she left with her belongings, police advised him to get a protection-from-abuse order against her.

Police say Patricia Katchur went back to the house while he was out and fell asleep. Police say she shot her husband shortly after he returned and woke her up.

Relatives declined comment after Friday’s preliminary hearing.
