Man won’t be prosecuted for shooting death of wife

PAPILLION, Neb. – An eastern Nebraska man won’t be prosecuted for the shooting death of his wife.

Authorities say 72-year-old Dennis Teague was cleaning his .22-caliber pistol Thursday afternoon at their Sarpy County home when the gun fired. The bullet struck his wife, 68-year-old Afton Teague, in the head. She was pronounced dead at an Omaha hospital.

Sarpy County Attorney Lee Polikov said in a news release Tuesday evening that an investigation showed neither the intent to shoot nor reckless disregard on the part of Dennis Teague.
