Betty Baker Barker, 39, of Danville, Texas, is charged with manslaughter after accidentally shooting her common law husband, Richard "Big Dick" Barker, 59, to death in January.
"She was in love with him, and this is simply a terrible, terrible accident," said Mary Sooner, Barker's
court appointed attorney, according to the Danville Doodler.
Prosecutor Mercy Mei says Barker "did admit to being in possession of the handgun when it went off and using it as a toy during foreplay with the victim's acquiescence and request for it to be used in that uh, off-beat manner."
They were, Barker allegedly argued, playing "Big Old Dirty Cowboy Being Pistol Whipped By Little Cathouse Katy" whenher arm was jostled and the gun in her hand, instead of Barker, accidentally went off.
A red-faced jury foreman announced an hour after dismissal that it was an accident.
The judge dismissed Betty but told her that any more "Texas Style Sex Games" should be with an unloaded penis... pistol.
