West Virginia (The Gaslamp Post) – A woman told police that the body of a man she said she had shot was an intruder. Police say Venus Parton, 39, shot that intruder after he had entered her home at around noon this past Sunday.
As it turns out, the man whom Parton dispatched with extreme prejudice was someone she reportedly knew. According to the West Virginia Gazette, the man she had shot was her on-again-off-again boyfriend, George Michael Bowens.
Police described their relationship as “stormy” and had alleged instances of domestic violence. Parton is believed to have acted in self defense and may not be charged.
