Miss. woman shot through head survives, makes tea

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A Mississippi woman hospitalized in Mobile not only survived being shot in the head but made herself some tea afterward.

Officials said 47-year-old Tammy Sexton of Harleston, Miss., remained hospitalized in Mobile on Friday after being wounded by her husband. He fatally shot himself.

But the woman was expected to recover fully. The sheriff of Jackson County, Miss., Mike Byrd, called that a miracle.

Byrd said Sexton's husband shot her early Tuesday in a rural home. A witness called sheriff's deputies, who arrived to find the woman talking and coherent.
