A Blountstown woman is behind bars accused of threatening to kill her husband with a shotgun.
Rhonda Lisa Maston Blocker, 47, has been charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Michael Allen Blocker, 53, called authorities around 8:30 p.m. last Wednesday night from a neighbor’s house and alleged his wife was threatening him with a shotgun.
Inv. Ken Futch responded to the couple’s home on SR 71 North where Blocker met him outside and advised his wife was intoxicated and inside the residence. Inv. Futch approached the house and spotted Lisa Blocker just inside the door as he peered through the glass. She opened the door and when Inv.
Futch asked where the gun was, she pointed to a pellet gun on a table and indicated she used it to shoot cats. He asked again about the shotgun and she directed him to the master bedroom where the gun was in plain view in a corner. It was seized for safety reasons.
Michael Blocker told Inv. Futch they had been to visit friends earlier and when they returned home, Lisa went to lay down in the bedroom and he sat in the living room. Later, he said she came in the living room and tried to start an argument. Rather than argue, Michael Blocker told her he was going to bed and went to lay down. A short time later, she came back into the bedroom, turned on the lights, and he looked up to see her armed with a shotgun. He alleged Lisa stated, “I’m going to kill you.”
Fearing for his life, Michael threw a shoe at Lisa in an effort to distract her, got on his feet, struggled with her over the shotgun, then fled to the neighbors.
A witness in the home provided a statement that was consistent with Michael Blocker’s story.
Lisa was then placed under arrest and taken to the Calhoun County Jail. During transport, she suggested the charges would send her back to prison, then allegedly remarked, “I should have killed him.”
