It was explained to me by an attorney that by law it must go to a grand jury. Even if it’s overwhelmingly obvious that it’s a justifiable self defense. She said that shooting someone is technically illegal so it must proceed through the legal system. Your welcome to argue my post, but I’m just the messenger on this one.
I wouldn't count on nullification. If the law doesn't allow this, she may well get indicted.
That being said TX has pretty generous self defense statutes. Lots of SYG and Castle Doctrine type stuff. I don't know how this will play. With no indication that the dead guy actually tried to break in, claiming self defense against a threat of deadly force may be a stretch. Then again, that might not be necessary in TX.
