Police: Woman Shot Son-in-Law After Serving Him Cake

Monday, 03 Dec 2007, 12:40 PM CST

A Rowlett man is recovering Monday afternoon after his mother-in-law reportedly served him a piece of cake, then shot him in the head.

Police say Jenelle Thompson invited her son-in-law, Steven Handel, to her trailer to have some cake on the evening of Nov. 30.

After serving him and putting on a movie, Thompson reportedly came up behind Handel and shot him in the back of the head with a 22 caliber pistol.

The shot did not penetrate the skull, and Handel was left injured but alert. He went outside and called 911.

After the shooting, Thompson barricaded herself inside her home. When she later emerged, police noticed she had shot herself in the chest.

In the 911 call, Handel told police he was suspicious and thought the incident was planned. He was treated for his injuries at Parkland Memorial Hospital.

Authorities say Thompson will likely be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She is currently still under treatment at a local hospital.

Police are still trying to determine a motive for the shooting.
