A Prague man charged in last month’s shooting of his estranged wife appeared in court Tuesday and a preliminary hearing date was scheduled for December.
Phillip Mlynek, 58, is charged in Pottawatomie County District Court with assault and battery with a deadly weapon, a felony.
He was initially jailed in this case on a complaint of shooting with intent to kill after his wife, Shirley Mlynek, suffered injuries to both legs from a No. 4 buckshot.
According to court records, the Mlyneks were married in 1975 and Shirley Mlynek filed for divorce this past August. Deputies said she was staying at her son’s home, located in the panhandle of rural Pottawatomie County, which is where the alleged shooting occurred.
According to records in this case, Shirley Mylnek told deputies her husband confronted her with a shotgun when she arrived home, and he asked her to sign some paperwork that would entitle him to land they own.
Phillip Mylnek was taken into police custody after taking his wife to the Prague hospital, documents show.
Mylnek appeared in court Tuesday, where a preliminary hearing date was scheduled for Dec. 28. He is being represented by Attorney Cregg Webb.
