Lee County Stand Your Ground Case to Be on Dr. Phil, Wednesday

We previously covered the Domestic Violence Case where Vincent DeLuca was stabbed my Amanda Arruda. She was charged with Aggravated Battery, and her attorney, Janese Caruthers, filed a Stand Your Ground motion for immunity, alleging that she was justified in defending herself. After an evidentiary hearing on the motion, the Judge found her to be justified in stabbing Mr. DeLuca, and dismissed the case against her. In his ruling, the court found his testimony not to be credible, and found her testimony to be credible and supported by the physical evidence presented in court.

It was a dramatic case, as the stabber who was accused of the crime was ultimately determined by the court to be the victim of the offense. The case was dramatic enough that Dr. Phil has filmed it for a segment, which is slated to air Wednesday, 4/17. Crimcourts will recap, but it appears to be worth watching.
