MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A western Montana man is charged with breaking into his estranged wife’s house and trying to kill her and her ex-husband.

Missoula County prosecutors say 37-year-old Jamison Daniel Richmond broke into the residence in Frenchtown on July 5, pointed a gun at his wife’s chest and pulled the trigger, but the gun misfired. The woman reported she moved Richmond’s hands up when he had the gun pointed at her ex-husband, causing a shot to be fired into the ceiling.

Richmond was arrested last Friday and made an initial appearance in Justice Court on Monday. He also is charged with aggravated burglary, assault with a weapon and two counts of violating an order of protection.

Richmond did not enter a plea. His case was assigned to the public defender’s office.
