Mother Charged After Shooting Man She Found in Bed With Teen Daughter
New details have emerged in the case of an Oklahoma mother who was arrested after shooting a 31-year-old man she found kissing her daughter in bed.
Valerie Fowler admitted to having met the man before, after initially labeling the unidentified man as an “intruder” according to official documentation.
Fowler was initially arrested for assault with a deadly weapon after shooting the man twice, wounding him, Jon Scott reported.
Her 16-year-old daughter told police the man visits about three times a week while Fowler is at work.
Trial attorney Wendy Patrick said on Happening Now that the investigation of this will be similar to a police-involved shooting:
“What facts and circumstances were available to the mother—what did she see, what did she hear, what did she know?”
“Was it a defense-of-others? [Did she] think her daughter was in danger?”
