Summary
"When a woman kills a man who beats her, is it murder? Or is it justice? This program examines the legality of when, ever, a victim of domestic violence is justified in killing her abuser. The Jane Abbott and Linda Logan cases assess the courtroom admissibility of evidence of battering, while the high-profile Lorena Bobbitt case and others raise the question of whether the plea of battered woman syndrome can be manipulated into a license to maim--or kill."--Container
