Man refuses to testify against girlfriend who allegedly shot him

June 13, 2013 at 5:11 PM

NEW YORK, June 13 (UPI) -- A New York man whose girlfriend allegedly shot him in the head during an argument said he loves the woman too much to testify against her.

Randolph Costa, 59, said he wants the court to drop the order of protection keeping Evelyn Barnave, 43, away from him. She allegedly shot him in the head Jan. 11, 2011, while he was standing near her car and drove away, the New York Post reported Thursday.

"I'm just hoping they drop this order of protection so we can get married ... We love each other," Costa said.

Costa, who said the bullet is still lodged in his skull, said he agrees with Barnave that the gun went off accidentally while they argued.

Barnave's trial on an attempted murder charge is to resume Monday.
