    Case of woman accused of killing husband delayed another month

    The case of a Sterling woman accused of shooting her husband has been further delayed as hospital officials have requested an additional month for a psychiatric evaluation.

    A mental evaluation to determine whether Rosangela Spradling is able to stand trial was ordered Oct. 11.

    Roseangela Spradling, 42, is accused of shooting her husband Steven Spradling, 52, on May 17 in their Sterling home.

    According to earlier testimony, the two had argued earlier in the evening, with Steven Spradling, a Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority police officer, throwing Roseangela Spradling to the ground and choking her. Roseangela Spradling would later retrieve his service weapon and shoot him.

    A spokesperson for the LCSO said there had been multiple calls to the home for domestic disturbance issues beginning in 2003.

    Spradling currently faces charges of first-degree murder, maliciously discharging a firearm into a dwelling and two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
