JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- JSO arrested Karla Gene Davis, 36, on suspicion of the murder of Ian Klinedinst, 22.

Klinedinst was gunned down in front of his two youngest children, ages 2 and 7-months, at 9:18 p.m. on Sunday in the 6100 block of North Earline Circle.

Police said Davis drove up to Klinedinst's car and shot him in the face. Klinedinst died at the scene. Two of Klinedinst's young children were in the car with him.

Police said Davis and Klinedinst were strangers.

After the shooting, police reported that Davis went to her residence to pack up some belongings and fled to a local hotel where she was arrested on Thursday.

Davis told police she acted in self-defense, but investigators said evidence collected at the scene along with additional witness interviews contradict her version of events.

Again with ANJ throwing out a very odd, very incomplete story. So this dude is sitting on the side of the road, the lady that is a complete stranger pulls up next to him and shoots him in front of his 2 kids in "self defence" and??? wheres the details man? What the heck is going on here? why is she claiming self defence? Why did she pull up to and shoot a complete stranger? WTF ANJ? As usual, terrible reporting from the same old half ased reporters that dont do thier job and are more interested in playing on line dating games than getting a complete and correct story out. Come on people get your heads out of your butt holes for the love of God!

This woman shot a devoted father in front his kids.And now it's self defense because she thinks she will away with it.How stupid does she think we are.Now them little one's will grow up without a dad and it's a shame because he was doing nothing wrong when he was killed.But she will get what's coming for her.She is a sorry ass piece of trash and hope she rots in a cell or gets the death row.I pray them little one's and his fiance will get the justice they deserves.

Self defense? Didn't they say he was parked on the road, she drove by then turned around & came back? they were strangers? This is very odd!!

Well here we go, she said it was self-defense. I guess they should let her go! Murdered the man in front of his children. Now this is a thug!
