Altercation leaves husband injured



Published: Wed, January 2, 2002 @ 12:00 a.m.



YOUNGSTOWN -- Phillip Albenze, 33, of Eleanor Avenue suffered a gunshot wound to his right arm and back around 1:40 a.m. New Year's Day.

Albenze told police that that he had been in the basement of his home with his wife, Christine, 35, and several friends, very intoxicated and singing along to a karaoke machine. When the machine broke, his wife became angry, he said.

He tried to fix the machine, then punched a lamp and went upstairs to sleep, he said. His wife, yelling, tried to pull him out of bed and, the next thing he remembered, they were hugging in a bathroom and he heard a loud bang, reports show.

Albenze told police he pulled away from his wife, saw a gun in her hand and realized he'd been shot.

His wife, though, told police her husband grabbed her around the neck, knocked her to the floor and slammed her against the bathroom wall. She said he pointed a gun at her head and threatened to kill her.

During the struggle, she picked up the gun from the floor and pulled the trigger in an attempt to scare her husband, she said.

Albenze was released to police custody today from St. Elizabeth Health Center.
