PARIS, Maine (AP) — A Maine woman has been accused of attempting to kill her son-in-law after breaking into his house.

Paris police say 61-year-old Mary Landers was arrested Sunday at her house in Paris on charges of aggravated attempted murder and burglary. The Sun Journal reports Landers is accused of breaking into Matthew Lobb's house Saturday and pointing a loaded handgun at him.

Authorities say Landers pulled the trigger, but the gun didn't fire. Lobb grabbed the gun from Landers before she fled.

Deputy Zane Loper of the Oxford County Sheriff's Office said in an affidavit that Lobb argued with his wife earlier that day, and that Landers sent a text message to her daughter about threatening to kill Lobb.

It wasn't immediately known if Landers had a lawyer. A message was left at her home Wednesday.
