    Landlady's stabbing of tenant was self-defense

    A Richmond woman who fatally stabbed a tenant in her home acted in self-defense and will not be charged, a prosecutor said today.

    Renee Glover, 51, was released from Contra Costa County Jail on Wednesday after prosecutors determined that she had stabbed Garry Crowder, 46, to protect herself during a fight with him, Deputy District Attorney Barry Grove said.

    Crowder was found dead at Glover's home on the 1700 block of Virginia Avenue in the city's Coronado neighborhood about 8:30 p.m. Dec. 2, police said.

    Glover rented a room to Crowder and may also have had a romantic relationship with him, Grove said.

    On the night of the slaying, the two apparently were drinking and got into an argument, Grove said. Crowder punched her in the face and was held back by two other people in the home, but he managed to free himself and throw a VCR at Glover, Grove said.

    When Crowder charged at her again, Glover grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed him, Grove said. She was not arrested that night, but turned herself in two days later.

    She needs to choose her drinking associates more closely in the future, it appears

    She believed she acted in self-defense. She was in fact attacked violently after seeing proof of the violent intent of the person. She "turned herself in" for that. Hm. If she was not arrested, why in the world would she voluntarily submit in such a way? About as simple a way of saying "I'm guilty" as there is.
