“The night of the shooting, we had a disagreement, and he took the keys to the truck and would not let me got to work. I brought him his supper while he was sitting in his recliner. I was still trying to convince him to give me the keys because I was going to be late for work,” she says, claiming, “He got up and he had a butcher knife in his hand. He looked at me and said, ‘Bitch, you’re going to taste the gates of Hell.’”
Debbie claims that’s when she snapped. “I can remember going to the gun cabinet, and there was a 38 pistol. I started shooting.”
Debbie, who spent two years in prison and lost custody of her children, claims she blacked out and doesn’t remember anything else about the shooting, until she heard Dominick calling her name. That’s when she says she called 9-1-1.
Debbie’s daughter, Lace, who was 6 at the time of the shooting, claims her mother is a liar. She says Debbie was not acting in self-defense and just wanted her dad dead, which Debbie denies. WATCH: Daughter Claims Mom Lied About Shooting Dad In Self-Defense: ‘I Believe She Wanted To Kill Him’
