GRAND FORKS -- A Grand Forks woman who was shot in the head by her husband is listed in critical condition, Altru Hospital spokeswoman DeAnn Hecht said.


Julie Cordts' family allowed the hospital to release her condition Tuesday after previously requesting it not be made public, Hecht said.

Officers found Cordts, 47, unconscious and seriously wounded on the floor of a bedroom in her home last week. The body of Cordts' husband, 50-year-old Lyle Cordts, was found on the bed.
