NASA love triangle couple to wed

July 10, 2009 5:26:22 PM PDT
A Florida attorney says a couple who were rocketed into the public eye because of ex-astronaut Lisa Nowak are getting married. Kepler Funk, a Melbourne attorney who represents Colleen Shipman, said Friday that she and former space shuttle pilot Bill Oefelein have gotten engaged. The couple, who now live in Alaska, have not set a date.

Authorities say Nowak, who worked with Oefelein in the space program, drove from Houston to the parking lot of Orlando International Airport in February 2007 to confront Shipman.

Nowak is set to go on trial Dec. 7 on charges of attempted kidnapping, burglary and battery with assault. She was dismissed from the astronaut corps after her arrest and has since been on active duty at a Navy base in Corpus Christi, Texas.
