LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Kentucky Supreme Court has reinstated the reckless homicide conviction of a Bullitt County woman who shot and killed her husband.

The justices concluded that the evidence supported the conviction of Janice Hasch, 61, of Shepherdsville.

On the afternoon of April 14, 2008, Hasch was arrested for shooting Jerald Hasch between the eyes. Hasch said she shot her husband after he came at her in a fit of rage.

In February 2009, Hasch was convicted on a reckless homicide charge. The next month she was sentenced to two years in prison.

The ruling overturns a decision by the Kentucky Court of Appeals throwing out the verdict.
