Teen Girl Kills Uncle in Self-Defense - November 15th 2010, 12:18 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of rape or abuse, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

The uncle wanted to sleep with her in her bed, she refused, he got a bottle to strike her, she stabbed him in neck, he died. Seems like clear-cut self defense case, so why is she in custody?

They might also be worried for her safety too, thinking she might do something to harm herself.

I don't see anything wrong with that.

No charges have been pressed and like Brittany said, it's probably for her safety.

I would have to agree with Kitty. I don't see anything wrong. It's to protect herself.

If there's evidence to prove the the uncle tried to intentionally strike her with a bottle, then I don't think she should be in custody. But like some people have suggested...this is kind of a tough situation to be in so I'm sure they're just trying to gather as much information as they can before they conclude that it was a justified kill in self-defense rather than unjustified kill for some other reason.

The attack happened on the 10th and the article was published online at 7:30 am on the 11th. Has anything been updated?

I found a slightly updated story from the 12th that states that she was released without charges but the investigation is continuing:
