Mom Charged With Killing Husband, Shooting Son On Mother’s Day


SANTA ANA (CBS) — A Tustin woman was arrested on suspicion of killing her husband and wounding her son on Mother’s Day, an Orange County sheriff’s spokesman said Monday.

Annamaria Gana was booked on suspicion of murder and attempted murder in the Sunday afternoon shooting death of her husband, 73-year-old Tony Gana, and the wounding of her 16-year-old son in an unincorporated neighborhood of north Tustin, sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino said.

When deputies arrived after the 4:25 p.m. shooting at 18422 Manning Drive, the woman’s 9-year-old son was holding what investigators suspect was the murder weapon — “a high-powered handgun,” Amormino said.

The 16-year-old boy was in fair condition today, recovering from bullet wounds in his shoulder area, Amormino said.

Tony Gana suffered a gunshot wound to the chest, Amormino said.

Investigators declined to reveal the suspected motive for the shooting, he said.

    You know what man. What gives you the right to say something like that? Tony Gana is my best friend and his mom is one of the nicest people ive ever met. So keep your mouth shut.

      i would like to informed all the readers that anna maria magno gana or aimee gana is not real wife of mr. antonio gana. tony gana left his real wife in the philippines and he migrated in the united states to avoid gossip and intrigue here in philippines. both of them are doing imorality and they are not good example in the society.

    Excuse you. Get your facts straight before you go running your mouth. Tony was a personal friend of mine, and he was her SON. You are an ignorant person.

        Eunice Robles is an ignorant bitachi. You’re trying to justify the woman’s action by spilling the private life of the one that just passed away. You’re just as guilty as the murderer.

    Eunice, its well known that in the Philippines its very common for a man to up and leave his wife, because that country doesn’t recognize divorce (unless you’re a TV or movie star.) Regardless,Tony was only seeking personal happiness, call it immoral if you want, but his “real” wife obviously wasn’t keeping him happy. And Tony certainly didn’t deserve to be shot to death, as his “companion” is finding out now.
