STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania man jailed on charges he fatally shot his wife is claiming self-defense, although the district attorney says physical evidence doesn’t support that claim.

Forty-nine-year-old Alois Kudlach, of College Township, remained jailed Wednesday on charges of first- and third-degree murder in Sunday’s shooting of 51-year-old Nuria Kudlach.

State College police responded after Kudlach called 911 to say he shot his wife as she came at him with a knife.

But Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller says Kudlach’s claim isn’t credible because forensic evidence shows the woman was shot three times and was turned away from him.

Defense attorney Karen Muir says she may argue self-defense at Kudlach’s preliminary hearing Sept. 9 and that she plans to “question the forensics.”
