CORINTH — A decision as to whether a Corinth man will face criminal charges for the November fatal shooting of his wife is expected as soon as early this week.
State Police have said they believe Eric Rosenbrock accidentally shot his wife, 34-year-old Ashley Rosenbrock, Nov. 15 in the family’s home on Raymond Street in Corinth. She died a short time later.
Rosenbrock told police that he was “maintaining” the handgun when it fired, authorities said. He had a pistol permit for the gun.
State Police have not released any details as to how they believed the gun came to discharge, or what injuries Mrs. Rosenbrock suffered.

Despite the fact the shooting has been billed as an accident, criminal charges could still be filed, alleging Mr. Rosenbrock was criminally negligent, reckless or depraved. That could result in counts of criminally negligent homicide, manslaughter and even second-degree murder for an unintentional killing.
State Police and members of the Saratoga County District Attorney’s Office have been discussing the investigation in the weeks since the shooting. District Attorney Karen Heggen has had no public comment on the investigation.
Mr. Rosenbrock is a teacher in the Lake George School District, and returned to school in January.
