NY: Stepdaughter Shot, Self Defense Claimed
The mother, Jeannette Meredith, told CBS New York that her daughters are homeless and were trying to break into her apartment. She said that's why the suspect, her husband, stepped in.
Arthur Meredith, 38, was taken into police custody, but had not been charged.
"It was self-defense," Jeannette Meredith said. "They were trying to attack us and hurt us. They had a steak knife with them."
