ZenTiger So a pretty bad week then?

Sarah McKinley says that a week earlier a man named Justin Martin dropped by on the day of her husband's funeral, claiming that he was a neighbor who wanted to say hello. The 18-year-old Oklahoma City area woman did not let him into her home that day.

On New Year's Eve Martin returned with another man, Dustin Stewart, and this time was armed with a 12-inch hunting knife. The two soon began trying to break into McKinley's home.

As one of the men was going from door to door outside her home trying to gain entry, McKinley called 911 and grabbed her 12-gauge shotgun.
Sarah then spent 21 minutes on the phone talking to the emergency services operator. When one of the men finally managed to kick the door in, the Police still had not arrived. She decided to shoot the intruder, and the other ran off.

That would have capped off a pretty tough period, and I can't help think that the man got his just desserts and saved this women from a trial and fear that he might be back for revenge. Although having to shoot some-one in your own home whilst coping with the recent death of your husband is not going to be an easy thing.

Self Defence

Hat tip: Whale Oil Beef Hooked thinks that the American Self Defence Law is a good law. I'm inclined to agree with that.
