On January 17, 2009, 50-year-old Cynthia Monson fatally shot her ex-girlfriend of twelve years five times. According to Monson, Patricia Thomas, 55, went to Monson’s house, threatened to kill her, and take her children away.
Monson called 911 after the shooting and gave two statements to police the same afternoon. The first statement was recorded on audio tape inside the back of a police car. The second statement, in which Monson demonstrates the sequence of events that led to the shooting, was recorded on video tape.
Monson, who admits firing her gun at Thomas, now stands accused of first-degree murder and faces life in prison. Seven women and five men make up the jury panel.
The trial begins airing tomorrow on In Session.
