SUNDERLAND — Lori T. Pratt pleaded innocent in Bennington District Court on Tuesday to shooting her husband after discovering a pornographic video beneath their bed.

Pratt, 30, was ordered held without bail by Judge David Suntag pending an evidentiary hearing.

Pratt is charged with attempted murder and aggravated domestic assault for allegedly shooting Dennis Pratt, 21, in the shoulder with a .22-caliber rifle Saturday afternoon. The shooting allegedly took place at the couple’s North Road trailer.

“I think she should serve some time and be responsible for her actions,” Dennis Pratt said in an interview Tuesday. “I want her to get the help and treatment she needs — the mental help she needs — before she re-enters our home.”

According to police, Lori Pratt began beating her husband after she discovered the video. Dennis Pratt left the house to run an errand, only to find his wife pointing the loaded rifle at his groin when he returned.

Although Lori Pratt threatened to shoot her husband then, she cooled off enough to eject a round from the rifle’s chamber. But when Dennis Pratt went into their bedroom to call the police, she followed him and hung up the phone.

Lori Pratt reloaded her weapon and vowed to shoot her husband if he tried redialing 911. She also asked him for instructions on how to use the gun, which he gave. Dennis Pratt was at the phone when he was shot, police said.

“I think she meant to shoot the wall, but I was in the way,” he said Tuesday. “I don’t think she meant to hit me.”

In addition to arguing about the pornographic videotape, the Pratts quarreled about money, according to a housemate. Lori Pratt works at the Happy Days Daycare in Arlington. Her husband is unemployed.

When he first came home, Dennis Pratt admitted to taking cash from his wife’s pocketbook, police said.

Pratt won a restraining order against his wife Tuesday that allows her supervised visits with their two children if she is released from jail.

It is not the first time the couple has been in Bennington Family Court.

Lori Pratt, whose last name was then Billings, had been dating Dennis Pratt for about six months when she sought a relief from abuse order in September 2001.

She submitted an affidavit in which she described a fight at the Applegate Apartments complex. Dennis Pratt tried to “take all of his pills” before he punched her in the mouth, she said.

But Lori Pratt went back to court two months later and asked that the restraining order be lifted, saying the couple was back together.

“He bought a home for all of us to live in and with the order we can not live with him at this home,” Lori Pratt wrote.

Four children, ages 10 months to 10 years, were present in the trailer at the time of the shooting, police said. In addition to the couple’s two children, one belonged to Lori Pratt and the other to family friends, according to Dennis Pratt.

Heh you're not the only one. The first thing I thought of when I read the thread title was the college wrestlers who were secretly videotaped in the locker room and had it sold on the net as "porn".
