An Alabama woman is accused of shooting her Army husband dead in their front yard three days after he took out a restraining order against her.

Brittnay Ryals Paonessa, 27, was charged with murder on Friday after her husband, 26-year-old Brandyn Paonessa, died of gunshot wounds the day before.

Medics tried to save Mr Paonessa after he was found injured from the shotgun attack in Phenix City but he succumbed to his injuries.

The couple had welcomed their fourth child into the world just months earlier but the soldier had grown concerned about his wife's mental health.

Mr Paonessa was described as an infantryman who had served in the Army since September 2013.

Court documents say he had filed an emergency 'protection from abuse order' on Monday against his wife.

The filing states he was concerned about his wife's mental health and claims that she refused to have treatment at a rehabilitation center.

According to WSFA, he had accused Mrs Paonessa of stalking him as well and his family and friends.

On one occasion she had driven a truck into their house just three feet from their four children, Mr Paonessa reportedly alleges.

So according to one story all of this started when she got a hold of his cell phone and went through it and then allegedly started flipping out. By all accounts he was a decent man, actually pretty handsome to be honest.

She seemed to have the batshit crazy look down to a T. The sad thing was keeping firearms anywhere near this broad. Now those poor kids got to grow up eventually learning what mom did. Odds are pretty good that they're going to wind up split up in different homes. One family effectively destroyed.

26 and 4 kids. They aged her. Doesn’t say if she worked. It’s no excuse at all but I do empathise if she was with the children 24/7. (She could have gotten sterilised though)
He hit her in the past and she dropped charges. No mention of his mental health (even though he served in Afghanistan and had previously hit her....)
Months earlier she gave birth (ppd)
Can understand a little, but there’s always better options, even if the world seems crazy and you’re the only sane one left.
Poor kids.
They’re the only victims in this mess.
More should be done for mental health, including free, mandatory psychological health checks for new parents and veterans (serving and non serving)
