QLD Granny To Be Sentenced Over Shooting
A Gold Coast grandmother who fired a handgun at her son-in-law because she feared for the safety of her granddaughter is due to be sentenced.
Miriam Annette Eason didn't hit him when she opened fire in March 2016 but told police she would have her eyes fixed before attempting to finish the job.
The 53-year-old couldn't believe she'd missed and told investigators she should have gone to an optometrist first.
In March she pleaded guilty to two counts of dangerous conduct with a weapon and one count of unlawful possession of weapon.
Southport District Court heard Eason had a history of mental health issues and drug abuse.
She's been in custody and is due to be sentenced on Thursday.
