ZION GROVE, Pa. — A man who allegedly shot his wife at a bar this week is now facing murder charges after she died from her injuries.

Pennsylvania state police say 51-year-old Diane Brobst, of Sugarloaf, died Wednesday at a hospital. She had been shot Tuesday night while sitting at the bar in the Shenandoah Fish and Game Club in Zion Grove.

Her 62-year-old husband, Steven Brobst, allegedly entered the club and shot his wife in the head. He was then wrestled to the ground by other patrons, who took away the gun and detained him until troopers arrived.

Steven Brobst remained jailed Friday, and it wasn’t known if he’s retained an attorney. He faces numerous counts, including murder, criminal homicide and aggravated assault.

A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.
