Woman kills live-in boyfriend after tomahawk incident, says it was self-defense
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – A Daytona Beach woman told police she was in bed late Christmas Eve when her live-in boyfriend raised a tomahawk over her -- so she shot the man to death, she told detectives. It was in self-defense, the woman told investigators, as she feared Sorrell was about to strike her with the tomahawk as he held it over his head, the news release said. Deputies went to their home in October after the woman reported Sorrell was wearing military gear and carrying around a gun. No one was injured in that incident; the woman told deputies Sorrell was protecting the home and she did not feel threatened by him, officials said. The deadly shooting remains under investigation, and no further information or records are available for release, according to investigators.
