    She left the house to retrieve her gun, then fired a shot. Apparently a jury agreed that if she was really in fear for her life, she wouldn't have re-entered the house. At the very least, if for some reason she couldn't leave through the garage, I think she could have hung out in there with her gun, and used it if he came after her out there.

    The only parallel I see between this case and the Zimmerman case is "stand your ground" being used as a defense, and a firearm involved.
