WLWT in Cincinnati reports:

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- A Tri-State woman is in critical condition Wednesday after police say her husband shot her while they were having sex.

Timothy Havens, 38, told Springfield police he was reaching for something on the nightstand when the pistol went off, hitting his estranged wife Carolyn in the upper chest.

(emphasis added)

Subject to a restraining order, yes. "Estranged?" Quoth Inigo: "I do not think that word means what you think it means." If you're having sex with a woman, it's hard to describe her as "estranged."

Of course, now that you've gone and shot the woman, anything's possible going forward . . .

UPDATE: Oh, and I'm not sure what the distance-buffer was in the restraining order, but I'm pretty sure penetration would put you in violation of it.

UPDATE: Not that it would be enforced, if the relations here were consensual, as it appears (up to the point of the gunshot).

UPDATE: I think I should win some sort of award for writing first the post, and then two, going on three, updates, without trying to make something clever out of the report of a "pistol going off" in this context.
