Prosecutor: Fatal Shooting Was Self-Defense
WESTLAND, Mich. -- No charges will be filed against a Westland woman over the fatal shooting of her husband Monday evening, according to a story in the Observer & Eccentric newspaper.
In a Nov. 8 article, the newspaper wrote that Jared Callender, 23, was shot three times in the bedroom of the home he shared with his 47-year-old wife.
Westland police Sgt. Michael Harhold said, They had a rocky relationship. There had been prior domestic problems and calls to the police department.
The wife operates a hair salon and tattoo parlor from a building she owns in Detroit. The man, who was unemployed, reportedly again threatened his wife with violence when they returned to the Westland residence from the business.
She was in the living room when he came in and began removing clothing to take off his belt. He put the belt around her neck and was choking her, Harhold said.

She fired once striking him in the chest. When he raised his gun again, she fired twice more hitting him in the head, Harhold said. She had some injuries supportive (of her account) injuries.
