Bozeman shooting case in jury's hands


BOZEMAN, Mont. - A Gallatin County jury is deliberating in the case of a 59-year-old Bozeman woman charged with breaking into a former tenant's house and shooting him twice.

Jurors heard closing arguments on Thursday in the attempted deliberate homicide trial of Diana Arnold.

Prosecutors argued Arnold shot Henry "Dave" McDunn on May 30, 2012 - nine days after a judge ordered her to pay him about $22,000 in a dispute over the return of a $1,300 security deposit.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported Arnold testified that she didn't remember much from that day, but said it was McDunn who attacked her. She said she didn't shoot anybody.

Defense attorney Chuck Watson argued Arnold suffered a brain injury in a 1999 car crash and was in a "dissociative state" on the day of the shooting.
