Followup PA: Sherri Lynn Scarantino Found Justified in Domestic Killing
WILLIAM SPORT — A Lycoming County woman acted in self-defense when she shot and killed her boyfriend nearly a year ago, the district attorney says.
District Attorney Eric R. Linhardt Tuesday said he will not authorize a homicide charge against Sherri Lynn Scarantino, 39, in the death of Ty D. Kimble, 40.
"I am satisfied that Ms. Scarantino acted in self-defense, that she reasonably feared for her life and that her use of deadly force was justified," he said
She will be issued a summons on a state police charge of firearms not to be carried without a license, he said.
