Deputies said Susan Lorincz shot Owens through her front door after Lorincz yelled at Owens’ children, swung at them with an umbrella and threw objects at them for playing in a yard next to her home.

There is also a cry for more charges for Lorincz, who is claiming Stand Your Ground and facing a manslaughter charge.
