Grandmother of Green Bay Packers player dies after apparently accidental Ohio shooting

HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio — Authorities say a 69-year-old woman has died after being accidentally shot by her husband of 50 years in a southwest Ohio suburb.

Police in Huber Heights say Mae Worthy died today at a Dayton-area hospital following the Wednesday shooting that left her in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head.

Huber Heights police Lt. Matt Dulaney told the Dayton Daily News Thursday it appears that Worthy’s husband, James Worthy, was handling a gun in the bedroom and accidentally fired a shot that went through a bedroom wall and hit his wife while she sat on the couch.

The Worthys are the grandparents of Jerel Worthy, a defensive end for the Green Bay Packers, who said in a tweet his grandmother was an amazing woman.
