NORTH WALES, Pa. (AP) - A suburban Philadelphia woman has been ordered to stand trial in the shooting death of her ex-husband.

Sixty-three-year-old Hsiu-Chin Lin is charged with first-degree murder in Montgomery County in the May 22 death of 67-year-old Chien-Kuo Lin in North Wales.

Prosecutors said he contacted police asking for an officer to stand by while he collected belongings from his ex-wife’s home. He was later found shot to death in the garage.

Authorities allege that the defendant killed her ex-husband because he was living with another woman and had taken a family business away from her.

But her attorney said Lin, who wept throughout Wednesday’s hearing, “snapped” after emotional and physical abuse.

The couple’s son said he saw his mother test-firing the weapon in the backyard in the week before the shooting.
