CYNTHIANA, KY (WAVE) - Police say a Harrison County, Kentucky woman took matters into her own hands after she found her husband cheating.

Police say Kerrie Alvarez shot her husband in the crotch.

It happened Saturday night at the couple's home in Cynthiana. Police say Kerrie's 16-year-old daughter made the 911 call when the couple started fighting.

"I heard sirens and seen lights and just as I opened the door to look outside I heard a gunshot go off and my neighbor had shot her husband," said neighbor Christy Nickerson. "I don't know why I don't know the reason or anything."

"She come out of the house with the gun in hand, he told her repeatedly to put it down and then she laid face down on the ground so they could hand cuff her," said Chief Ray Johnson, Cynthiana Police Department.

Javier Alvarez was flown to UK Hospital where he is listed in fair condition.

Kerrie entered a not guilty plea in court on Monday.
