For example, she could have shot him with that gun months earlier when he was outside or entering her house, assuming the timeline is accurate. I have sympathy for someone who was victimized like her (especially as she might have been arrested for adultery if she'd reported the first incident to the authorities). But unlike poor Jyoti in India, Yildrim seems like the wrong "poster woman".
Since the "snippet wasn't enough for you you could have used google as well as I could. Frankly, I could give a darn whether she shot him the first time but that certainly is the last time for him. I can only imagine the torment this poor woman went through and can only hope that she is freed and even so her life will never be the same. I for one will never find myself in her situation so I refuse to judge anything she did and would suggest you do the same.
Trayvon Martin RIP:
Will keep Trayvon's Picture until Zimmerman is arrested and justice is done.
