Saw an update on the news this evening. Seems the dirt-bag she shot was a friend or knew her husband some how and possibly had been in their home before, and maybe again sometime after her husband passed away looking to steal his cancer medication. He also was suspected of stalking her at sometime in the past. So they suspect he was breaking in to look for and steal her husbands medication. The guy who was the accomplice is up on murder charges, and they are not going to charge her with anything, as they shouldn't. She did what she had to do. Again the Castle Doctrine did what it's declared to do! As for the dog theory, IMHO it looks to me like an elderly Germany Shepherd, so it most likely couldn't do much as an attacker due to its age. But I'm sure it is a beloved family-member just the same!
