Judge Rules Shannon Burke Can See Wife

July 17th, 2009 by

CLICKORLANDO — A judge has ruled that former radio personality Shannon Burke can see his wife, the woman he is accused of shooting.
Buke’s wife, Catherine Burke, took the stand on Thursday and said she now believes the shooting, which injured her and her dog, was an accident.

The couple’s visits will be restricted to marriage counseling sessions. Shannon Burke will not be able to move back into the couple’s home or call her.

On the stand, Catherine Burke, 48, spent an hour telling prosecutors that her previous sworn statements about violence in the marriage were not true. She initially said her husband was in a drunken rage when he threatened to shoot her dog while she watched, but she he fired, the bullet went through the dog and grazed her head.

Neither Catherine nor Shannon Burke commented after Thursday’s hearing.

Immediately after the May shooting, Catherine Burke sought an injunction and divorce from her husband.

The judge denied Shannon Burke’s request to remove his GPS tracking device.
