PEKIN — A rural Pekin woman, identified as a Peoria public school teacher, allegedly shot her husband in the ankle, then chased him and fired again.

More details of the Thursday incident emerged when Karen Garman, 55, was charged in court Friday with crimes that, for now, do not include the attempted murder charge on which she was booked into Tazewell County’s Jail.

That charge could emerge later in the case, a prosecutor told county Circuit Judge Stephen Kouri.

Garman, however, still faces potential decades in prison if she’s convicted of aggravated battery with a firearm against a victim over 60, filed as a Class X felony. She’s also charged with aggravated domestic battery.

She “evidently fired three times” and chased Kevin Garman, 61, as he fled from the basement of the couple’s home, the prosecutor said. The firing stopped when she ran out of bullets, Kouri heard.

Kevin Garman was treated at a Peoria hospital for what police said was a non-life-threatening wound.

Kouri set Garman’s bond at $250,000, rejecting for now a request for a lower bond from her defense attorney, Dale Thomas, who said Garman is a Peoria District 150 teacher with no prior criminal record.

Garman allegedly shot her husband at about 6 a.m. after she called for him to come down to the basement of their home at 11665 Hurt Road, about a mile south of Pekin near Illinois Route 29.

A possible motive for the shooting did not emerge in either Garman’s bond court appearance or the prosecutor’s affidavit citing probable cause for the charges.

“I shot Kevin, he’s not dead,” Garman told her daughter by text message, according to the affidavit. She also called police and stated she had just shot her husband.

Sheriff’s deputies found her standing near the door of the home. She told them they’d find the firearm, a .380-caliber pistol, inside the home, where the deputies also found two unspent bullets and a pool of blood on the basement floor, the affidavit stated.

Kevin Garman fled from the home to an undisclosed location before police located him. He said his wife called him to the basement, pulled out a gun, shot him in the ankle and fired again, the affidavit stated.

A District 150 spokesman was not available Friday to confirm that Garman teaches in District 150. She is next due in court on April 6.
