CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Casper woman accused of shooting her husband in the chest has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1LOKJI8 ) that Dana Miller also entered not guilty pleas Friday to aggravated assault and possession of a deadly weapon in connection with the Jan. 3 incident.

Miller had called 911 to report that she shot her husband, Dustin Edward Baer, inside their Casper apartment. Baer suffered a collapsed lung and a severed artery in his neck.

Miller has said she shot her husband accidentally after Baer became drunk and started calling her insulting names.

Baer allegedly told police he had retrieved the gun and had given it to Miller when she asked for it.
