Day One Nancy Focht Trial

The homicide trial began Wednesday for Nancy Focht, a Bedford woman accused of fatally shooting her husband in 2018.

During the first day of the trial, several state troopers testified about what they found at the crime scene.

Police allege that Focht confessed to firing two shots at her husband, striking him once, while the two were inside a shed located on their Kimmel Township property.

Troopers testified that an argument between Focht and her husband allegedly led to the shooting after her husband reportedly took off his wedding ring and told her “next time I put that on is when you’re in your casket.”

Focht claims that she and her husband struggled over the gun, during the argument, and that it went off.

Police testified that the autopsy report revealed no gunshot residue was found on her husband’s clothes, disputing her claims that he was shot at close range.

The trial is set to continue Thursday morning and is scheduled to last through next Monday.
