Wichita, Kansas

From Topeka’s of December 28, 2005
No Charges Expected Against Teen in Salina Woman's Death

Authorities in Wichita call the death of a 41-year-old Salina woman "justifiable homicide.''

Elizabeth White was shot near the heart Tuesday by a pellet gun fired by her 14-year-old son. Police say White had started a violent argument with her parents, and the boy fired to defend his 73-year-old grandfather.

White drove away after being shot and crashed her car a few blocks away.

Wichita police say the 14-year-old and his brother had been living with their maternal grandparents in the city. The fight broke out sometime after White arrived yesterday from Salina.

No charges are expected to be filed against White's son.
