Deputies said it happened on June 2, after Owens went to Lorincz’s apartment to talk about a dispute involving Owens’ children and Lorincz.

Owens’ children said Lorincz threw a skate at them and shouted racial slurs while they played in a field next to her home.

Lorincz has been locked up at the Marion County Jail since her arrest on June 6.

Detectives said Lorincz claimed she acted in self-defense and that Owens had been trying to break down her door before she fired the shot from inside the apartment.

If convicted of manslaughter, Lorincz could spend up to 30 years in prison.

Jury selection for her trial set to start Nov. 13th.

Channel 9 will be on hand for Wednesday morning’s court hearing.
