WOMAN WOUNDED

HUSBAND ON TRIAL

MURDER ATTEMPT CHARGE

P-A . DUNEDIN, this day. The trial is proceeding in the Supreme Court of Percy James Cuff, aged 38, tramways cleaner, on a charge of attempted murder of his wife Irene Margaret Cuff, with alternative minor counts, including one of being found by day with a loaded rifle with intent to enter a dwelling house and assault his wife by threatening to apply force. The accused, who is separated from his wife, admitted in a statement that he intended to frighten his wife. He denied that he told her he would shoot. She tried to take the rifle from him and he heard a shot. The wife, in evidence, stated that accused forced his way into the unlighted passage of her house, and said she had asked for it and was going to get it. She grabbed what she thought was a stick he held, which was pointed up in the air, and forced it down. Then she heard an explosion and realised that she was shot.
