MADEIRA, OH (FOX19) -
A 55KRC radio host plead not guilty in a Hamilton County courtroom on Wednesday morning after allegedly firing a shot at his wife Tuesday afternoon.
Police say Blake Seylhouwer of Madeira fired a shot at his wife Misty after she turned her back to walk away during a domestic argument.
According to police, the bullet struck the driveway and fragments hit Misty, causing injuries to her leg, chest, neck and head.
Officials say she also may have sustained injuries from falling during the incident. She was taken to University of Cincinnati Hospital Medical Center and could be released as early as tomorrow.
The shooting was reported by her husband Blake just before 3 p.m. at a home in the 5700 block of Windridge Court, located off of Kenwood Road. In the 911 call, he said he accidentally shot his wife when he was taking his rifle out of his truck.
Dispatcher: "You said you shot your wife?"
Blake: "Yes! Accidentally! I took the rifle out of the back of the truck and it went off!"
Blake was charged with one count of felonious assault and domestic violence. He is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center.
The shooting is still being investigated by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
The Seylhouwer's have two children, a 4-year-old and a toddler.
They both work for the 55KRC radio station. Blake has a Sunday radio show on the station in which he uses the name Blake Roberts and Misty is the executive producer there, according to her Facebook page.
Seylhouwer pleaded not guilty in a Hamilton County courtroom Wednesday morning and is held with a $250,000 bond.
The usually quiet street was stunned by the news. For neighbor Rob Misleh, he heard the news from his shaken mother.
"She called me. She was a little upset and said something happened across the street," he said. "Her and my dad had heard a gunshot."
"It was loud. It was a real quick, explosive bang," said Brandi Maples, who was visiting a friend when it happened. "It sounded like something had been shot and was crying and was in horrific pain. Just didn't know what to do."
