New Jacksonville case wants to use 'stand your ground' law
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- It was an emotional day in court over violence between blood. The state is accusing Shireeka Wilson of shooting her mother in the neck but her attorney wants her immune from prosecution.
She says the "stand your ground" law should protect her, because she believes Wilson only pulled a gun in self-defense.
"She attacked me, she just went wild on me and and at one point I lost it," said Wilson.
Wilson claims the gun accidentally discharged while she was struggling to get her mother to leave her convenience store.
oN Friday, Wilson's mother testified she was the aggressor and that her daughter shouldn't be punished.
"I started arguing with her telling her I was going to hurt her and I didn't care about her being my daughter and I ran to the truck and got mace," said mother Valerie Rushing.
The hearing will reconvene at 2 p.m. Tuesday.
