November 2, 1993

SEWALL’S POINT, Fla. (AP) _ A woman was so fed-up with her husband’s obsession with football that she shot him twice when he turned on the Dallas-Philadelphia game, police said.

Marlene Lenick, 60, was charged with aggravated battery. She was free Tuesday on $50,000 bond.

Michael Lenick, 63, came out of the shower Sunday and settled down to watch the Cowboys-Eagles game. His wife wanted to watch the news.

After telling her husband she ″had enough of that football,″ Mrs. Lenick went to the bedroom and returned to the den with a .38-caliber handgun, police said.

One bullet grazed Lenick’s abdomen; the other penetrated his left shoulder blade and exited through his neck.

Lenick was in good condition Tuesday at Martin Memorial Medical Center.
