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.
