FULTON — A mid-Missouri woman charged with killing her husband will be tried in Callaway County, but the jury will be chosen in another county.

Thirty-eight-year-old Sandra Plunkett of Holts Summit is charged with first-degree murder in the death of former Jefferson City police officer Paul Plunkett in January at their home.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reported that during a hearing Monday, attorneys agreed to have the trial in Callaway County but told the judge they wanted the jury brought in from another county.

Sandra Plunkett told investigators a man dressed in camouflage had pointed a gun at her outside her home. She said she found her husband shot to death in their home.
