The Tribune, Salt Lake City, UT, 10/30/87

Tuesday, March 1, 1988

When her landlord forced his way into her Salt Lake City, Utah, home and began beating her friend over a dispute involving automotive repairs, Michele Hansen grabbed her .44 Mag. handgun and repeatedly ordered him to leave. When he instead lunged at her, Hansen fired, killing him. A circuit judge dismissed charges against Hansen, who went into labor after the shooting and gave birth to a son later the same evening.
