A reality television attorney, Loredana Nesci, was killed last month. Her boyfriend has been charged with her murder. However, the boyfriend claims that her death was a case of self-defense.
According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, Nesci tried to attack her boyfriend with a hunting knife during a dispute the two were having. Her boyfriend allegedly defended himself – first by trying to disarm her. However, a struggle ensued, and she suffered fatal injuries.
Nesci’s boyfriend has been fully cooperative with police since the death, although he has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
Tragedies like this happen every day, and oftentimes individuals are falsely accused of murder when they have not actually committed the crime of which they have been charged.
