Trial ordered for woman accused of killing husband

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania woman accused of having shot and killed her husband after an argument about a burned casserole has been ordered to stand trial on homicide and evidence-tampering charges.

Thirty-eight-year-old Teresa Drum is charged in Allegheny County in the Feb. 27 death of 42-year-old Dennis Drum Sr.

A friend testified Friday that the defendant told her on the phone that she had just killed her husband and then sent her a cellphone photo of the body. She said she earlier heard him berating and threatening to kill her.

Frazer police found the victim lying dead on a bed with a gun in his hand. But authorities say there was no gun in his hand in the photo, which was taken 11 minutes before the 911 call was made.
