A married woman in Texas was with her lover in his pick up truck in her family driveway when her husband came home and saw them together. She cried “RAPE” and he fired his gun at the pickup as her lover (remember, he thought the guy was a rapist) drove away.
After the smoke cleared, the prosecution charged the woman with involuntary manslaughter.
A Texas woman who caused her lover’s shooting death by falsely crying rape was convicted Friday of involuntary manslaughter.
In late 2006, Darrell Roberson came home from a late-night card game to find his scantily clad wife with another man in a pickup truck in the driveway. Tracy Roberson was with her lover but cried rape, and her husband fired four shots into the truck as Devin LaSalle drove off, killing him.
