Minot woman on trial for murder testifies in own defense
MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A Minot woman on trial for allegedly killing a man a year ago testified in her own defense, saying she fired three times to protect herself.
Thirty-nine-year-old Kommika Gregory is accused of killing 58-year-old Ronald Thompson on Nov. 16, 2017, at a Minot residence. Police have said Thompson tried to intervene in a dispute between Gregory and her ex-boyfriend.
Gregory took the stand Tuesday and said Thompson had blocked her path, threatened to shoot her, shoved her, and kept coming after her.
Gregory faces a murder charge that could land her in prison for life without parole if she’s convicted.
