The Ruidoso woman who landed in the hospital after a home invasion was accidentally shot by her husband. 

It happened last month on Country Club Drive, when police say a couple woke up 1o 18-year-old Emmanuel Chee breaking into their home. 

The 69-year-old husband shot and killed Chee, but in the process he also shot his wife in the leg. 

She survived. 

The husband is not currently facing any charges.
