A woman who claimed she acted in self-defense when she shot her neighbor outside her Reserve home in 2015 was acquitted at trial Thursday.
A jury in St. John the Baptist Parish deliberated for 15 minutes before finding Tyranika Williams 27, not guilty on charges of aggravated battery in the shooting of Dwayne Cook on Oct. 8.
On the night of the shooting, Cooks - who survived the shooting - testified that his neighbor, Williams, came out of her house about 11 p.m. and shot him in the chest after he approached her and asked her for a ride to get cigarettes, according to a statement from Williams' attorney, Michael Smith
|"Assistant DA Leandre Millet argued that it hadn’t been reasonable or necessary for Williams to shoot Cooks, who was unarmed at the time"
1. drunk 2. high 3. continues approach on drawn gun after 'assault'
poverty sucks...if had a garage, no 3 day trial. The taxpayers of new orleans should be pissed, not only about the wasted funds, but the corruption. Shouldn't they reimburse taxpayers and/or be fired at a minimum?
This woman still had face pain 7 months later after punched in home invasion, choked out, and the perps used her car to commit 2 murders later. Has to pay out of pocket.
