TAMPA (CBSMiami/AP) —  The wife of a man shot and killed while arguing over texting at a movie theater in Wesley Chapel  said her “whole world just got shattered in a million pieces.”

Nicole Oulson cried during a news conference Wednesday at her attorney’s office in Tampa.

She says she’s recovering from being shot in the hand, and is focusing on their nearly 2-year-old daughter.

She and her husband, Chad Oulson, were in a movie theater Jan. 13 when he was shot during an argument with another man.

Curtis Reeves, a 71-year-old retired police officer, is charged with the second-degree murder and is being held without bail.

Friends of the couple say Chad Oulson was texting their daughter’s baby sitter when the fight erupted during movie previews.
