WENDY SUE WISHART

Wendy Sue Wishart, age 41, has been charged with murder in connection with the shooting death of her ex-husband.  Wishart will appear in court again on May 27.

WNCN reported that Wake County Public Schools has suspended Wishart, who had been working in the district only since April 7.

WNCN also reported details of the incident and that Wishart had called 911:

The shooting was reported at 9:08 p.m. on Wednesday inside a home on Lynnberry Place. Police said a man suffered life-threatening injures. He was taken to the hospital and later died.

Police identified the victim as 45-year-old Sean Michael Wishart.

Wendy Sue Wishart, 41, is now charged with murder in the case. She was arrested around 2:30 a.m. Thursday, according to records.

A nearly seven-and-a-half-minute-long 911 call released by Raleigh police on Thursday afternoon provided a few more details on what happened inside the home Wednesday night.

Wendy Sue Wishart calmly called 911 and after a few moments told the dispatcher that she shot Sean Wishart. “I shot him when um…he was in the…in the chest,” she said.

There is no teaching license on file with the state for Wishart.
