KS Followup: Domestic Defense, no charges for Woman who Shot, Killed, Husband

No charges will be brought against a Leavenworth County woman who fatally shot her husband last fall in self defense, the county attorney announced Tuesday.

Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson wrote in a letter saying that the woman had caused the death of her husband only to defend herself.

“Due to the fact that she was acting in self defense, no charges are warranted, nor will be filed against” her, Thompson wrote.

The Star is not naming the woman, who is a victim of domestic violence, as she was not charged in the death of her husband.
