Police: Florida woman shoots boyfriend for snoring too loudly
March 11, 2019
BREVARD COUNTY (CBSMiami) — A Florida woman is accused of opening fire on her boyfriend with a shotgun because of his loud snoring.
“It’s so stupid, so bizarre that I can’t imagine that kind of behavior," said one of Lorie Morin’s neighbors.
Morin, 47, is charged with attempted murder after deputies say she shot her boyfriend of three weeks during an argument over his loud snoring.
According to the court documents, the victim even showed up to the Cocoa home on Wednesday with breathing nose strips in an attempt to silence the problem.
However, after a night of drinking, the sheriff’s office says Morin fired a single shot hitting the victim on his side torso. Police say she used a shotgun.
"That’s crazy. I don’t care how mad you are, you shouldn’t be grabbing a gun unless your life is threatened," said the neighbor.
Detectives say Morin initially said the shooting was accidental and that the gun went off while she was handing it to him.
He claims she shot him because of his snoring.
The boyfriend is in stable condition and recovering at a local hospital.
Morin is charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery. She is being held at the Brevard County Jail with no bond.
