They're all listed as living at the same address, if you click into the original article. What's up with that?

My first exposure to forensics/crime scene stuff was at a sort of science/career fair back in high school; the presentation was the photos from a house where an abused wife finally had enough and killed her husband with a cast iron skillet. Broke the damn thing in half beating him, too, which I didn't know was possible.

I don't get why someone in their kitchen in need of a good weapon would go for a skillet. Not that it's not potentially deadly (as in this case), but there's a lower bound on how dangerous a large mass of metal with a handle can be, and a skillet is close to meeting it.

a) It was likely out on the stove or counter already b) he didn't want to stab the guy and thought he could just knock him out like in a cartoon or movie.

But a cast iron skillet... well that sh*t'll f*ck you up.

Actually, the young man choose his weapons wisely. If he had grabbed, say, a knife, if it were to go to trial the prosecution could claim that he intended to kill the man attacking his sister. It could be argued by the defense that by using a blunt force weapon his intent was only to stun the assailant.

Not too familiar with raging southern grannies adept at swinging cast iron skillets I'm guessing????

Maybe, but that could backfire. I'm no lawyer, but if you say that you're only trying to stun him, you're essentially admitting that lethal force wasn't really necessary, and yet you did something capable of killing him anyway. You might be better off with, "I was trying to kill him because I had to - it was the only way to save my sister's life."

Rolling pins are for stunning, unless it's one of those fancy marble ones like my MIL has. That thing would be at least as bad as the skillet.

Regardless of the weapon used, be it knife, skillet, or gun, never utter those words. Remember that "Everything you say can and will be used against you". If you absolutely must say something to the police your best bet is "I was in fear for her life".

Then by picking up a marble rolling pin instead of a wooden one when taking a swing at an unarmed man, you have proven premeditation to kill instead of stun.

/Scary part is, this is how lawyers actually think.
