Texas woman held in Wichita on suspicion of shooting husband’s mistress

A Granbury, Texas, woman was in the Sedgwick County Jail on Sunday, accused of fatally shooting her husband’s mistress at the victim’s Missouri home.

Shannon L. O’Roark Griffin, 52, faces extradition to Missouri on charges of murder and armed criminal action in the death of Irina Puscariu of Gladstone, Mo.

A Kansas state trooper arrested Griffin without incident shortly before 5:30 p.m. Friday two miles south of Mulvane on the Kansas Turnpike.

She told a trooper that there were two unloaded handguns in her car.

During a therapy session Friday morning in Great Bend, Griffin learned that her husband, Roscoe L. O. Griffin, was not going to leave Puscariu, according to a Missouri probable cause affidavit.

Griffin is accused of driving to Puscariu’s home in a suburb of Kansas City, walking in and shooting the 46-year-old psychiatrist three times.

Griffin then apparently began driving back to her home in Granbury, according to the affidavit.

While driving, Griffin called her husband’s home and told their daughter what she had done, the affidavit stated.
