WILTON — Eric Rosenbrock will be charged with second-degree manslaughter in his wife’s shooting death last November, his attorney said Monday.
The Lake George science teacher, who allegedly shot and killed his wife in their Corinth home, went to the local State Police barracks on Monday.
His attorney Kurt Mausert said Rosenbrock would be arraigned in Wilton Town Court and released.
At the time of Ashley Rosenbrock’s Nov. 15 death, her husband was questioned by investigators but not charged.
Monday’s development is the first outward sign of police action in the case since shortly after her death.
At the time, State Police said her husband was working on his handgun when the weapon went off in their 7 Raymond St. home in the village. The round struck and killed Ashley Rosenbrock.
Mausert said Monday his client had been preparing to go hunting with friends the next day and was focused on preparing his 9mm Walther when it discharged, striking his wife.
Her husband was questioned by investigators but had not faced charges until Monday.
Eric Rosenbrock was also a coach in the Lake George Central School District.
This is not the first time the Rosenbrocks experienced a tragic loss.
In January 2013, the couple’s second child, 1-year-old daughter Vivienne Rosenbrock, died of sepsis pneumonia. At the time of her death, Ashley Rosenbrock told NewsChannel 13 that her pediatrician said that the baby would be fine.
“Ten hours later, she was gone,” Ashley Rosenbrock said in 2014.
A year later, Ashley asked her Facebook community to do random acts of kindness in her daughter’s name. At the time, Ashley told the Glens Falls Post-Star, “It was just a way for me to say, ‘Don’t focus on what’s missing. Live your life to the fullest.'”
