On 07/20/2019, Carteret County Deputies arrested Ann Cobb Hughes, 71, of 246 Ida Bell Lane in Beaufort for shooting at her 67-year-old husband Haywood Hughes.

Deputies say they got into a domestic altercation and the man, who is disabled, locked himself in the couples bedroom after she left. Deputies say his wife returned and demanded entry into the bedroom. When he refused she fired one round through the door with a 357 Mangum revolver. Hughes told deputies she “wanted to kill that bastard”.
