For a split- second, Lucy McGinley confessed to herself she really wanted to kill her husband. Put two bullets into his chest and silence his incessant whining. But gathering her control immediately, she spun back to Sheriff Cole and in a voice that was both frantic and controlling screamed "Don't move!"
At that point, Cole expected to see and hear the flash and crack of the pistol and feel the agony of his own death, but instead he saw nothing but the trembling barrel and heard nothing but Samuel sobbing loudly, repeating over and over again "I'm not leaving you!"
