CHINO — A man accused of shooting his wife to death Sunday was unable to appear in court Tuesday because he remains hospitalized, according to a staff member in Chino Superior Court.
Bobby Joe Winters, 74, remained hospitalized at Loma Linda Medical Center, where he was being treated for a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his chest.
The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office on Monday charged Winters with murdering 70-year-old Angela Winters.
Bobby Joe Winters allegedly shot his wife twice at about 9:30 p.m. at the couple’s daughter’s home in Chino, then shot her a third time before dumping her body on an Ontario residential street, authorities said.
Winters then drove to his home in Rancho Cucamonga, where he shot himself in the chest after being confronted by San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies, authorities said.
