LOGAN COUNTY — It was anger that prompted a 63-year-old woman to kill her 66-year-old husband in the kitchen of their Logan County home earlier this year, prosecutors said.

Rosalie Kennedy, of Rushsylvania, was convicted of murder and felonious assault, both with gun specifications, by a jury last week in connection with the shooting death of Gary Kennedy. She faces up to a maximum sentence of life in prison.

"She was angry at him, we can't say with any certainty about what exactly she was angry about," Logan County Assistant Prosecutor Alice Robinson-Bond said of the motive for the crime.

A phone call to defense attorney Tina McFall was not returned. A date for sentencing in the case hasn't been set.

Sheriff's deputies responded to the couple's home in the 8000 block of Township Road 110 in Rushsylvania in March on a report of a shooting. When they arrived, Logan County Sheriff Randy Dodds said they found Gary Kennedy dead from a gunshot wound on the kitchen floor.
