And the prosecutors hate that. A Philly woman killed the boyfriend who’d threatened to put her ‘in the grave.’ A jury found her not guilty.
“You touch any of my s—,” he wrote, according to text messages read in court, “I guarantee your daughter will be missing two parents, because I’m going to jail and I’m going to put you in the grave.”
An hour later, Roye was dead. Ramseure had shot him five times, then called 911.
And on Thursday, a jury acquitted her on all charges.
The defense attorney gets the last word.
Coard, who in his closing arguments refused to identify Roye as a victim, called the prosecution “an outrage and an injustice,” and a waste of public resources. “Here’s a woman who had the [expletive] beaten out of her, she had a [Protection from Abuse Order], the guy comes into her house and she shoots him with his own gun. Why are we here? If that’s not the Castle Doctrine, what is?”
