Sarah McKinley, 18, of Blanchard, Okla., told KWTV, Oklahoma City, she hoped Dustin Stewart would remain in jail. She said she is "ready, waiting and watching" and plans to carry a gun with her everywhere.
Stewart, 29, has been charged because he allegedly participated in a felony that caused another person's death. He posted $50,000 bail at a hearing Thursday and was ordered to stay away from McKinley, to wear a GPS monitor and to remain at his parents' farm in Blanchard.
Justin Martin, who police said had a knife, and Stewart were allegedly looking for prescription drugs Saturday at McKinley's trailer. Some reports have said they believed she would have painkillers because her husband had died a few days earlier of cancer.
McKinley, on the phone with a 911 dispatcher, asked if she could shoot an intruder.
"You have to make a choice, you or him. I chose my son over him," McKinley told KWTV..
Prosecutors say McKinley will not face criminal charges because she acted in self-defense. She said she knows she did what she had to do but still replays the shooting in her mind.
"It's a help when people say I did the right thing," McKinley said. "Of course, you question it, and you wonder if you could have done something different."
