In Lewis County, West Virginia a woman shot and killed a man who was attacking her.
A young woman was attacked by a home invader who struck her in the back of the head knocking her to the ground, while on the ground she was kicked repeatedly. The attacker, John Frame, then grabbed her by the neck and told her that he was going to kill her. During the struggle, the woman was able to draw a small pistol and shoot the attacker once in the chest.
This case should wrap up quickly, if everything we have been told is true then this was a clear case of justifiable homicide. It is very hard to prove otherwise if the man had his hands wrapped around her neck and told her that he was going to kill her.
This story could have ended very differently had the woman not had a pistol on her person. Situations like these are a bleak reminder that only you are capable of defending your own life.
