Weird news - Man shoots wife so that she can avoid military deployment

Serving in the military means sometimes making tough choices. Armed forces have to deploy in different zones, sometimes far away from their families. For members of the US military, the world wide deployment of the US armed forces (including in war zones) along with rotational deployment means that members of the military, who can be in the country can be deployed in world wide zones, deployed for months altogether. For those members of the military who have been spending many months with their families, these orders of deployment can seem like a shock, and lead a few to wonder how to avoid these deployment orders.
But this lady took it a bit extreme, wanting to avoid deployment at all costs, and she did by getting shot in the legs in an intruder attack. However, on further investigation, it turned out that this attack was actually done by her husband on her request, and after this, criminal charges have been filed against both of them (link to article):

Police said Groomes allegedly claimed an intruder shot her early Friday while her husband and two children slept. Police responded to their home at about 3:30 a.m. She told investigators the alleged intruder fled out a back door on foot. But police said an investigation found that she convinced her husband to shoot her to avoid military service. Christopher Groomes was later arrested on a gun charge and booked into the Bossier City Jail. Judy Groomes was issued a summons on a criminal mischief charge for allegedly filing a false police report.
