Brooksville woman who shot husband dies after apparent heart attack

BROOKSVILLE — A Brooksville woman who shot her husband last month during what authorities said was a domestic dispute died Friday morning.

Jeanne Moore, 49, suffered an apparent heart attack at her home on Weatherly Road, said Peyton Hyslop, Moore's friend and attorney.

According to the Hernando Sheriff's Office, Shawn Moore left home on Christmas Day after a dispute with his wife, but returned shortly before 6 p.m. Dec. 26. Another disturbance ensued; authorities found Shawn Moore, 44, dead at the scene.

The Sheriff's Office was still investigating; Moore had not been charged. Authorities say a lengthy history of unreported domestic abuse preceded the death.

"We will continue to work that investigation to conclusion. However, we are now hampered by our inability to reapproach Jeanne for any additional information we may have wanted clarification on," said sheriff's Sgt. Phil Lakin.

Hyslop said his conversations with investigators indicated charges were not going to be filed. He said the couple have two children, ages 11 and 13. Jeanne Moore also had an older son from a previous marriage.
