A Flint woman who told police she shot her live-in boyfriend because she believed he was an intruder will not be charged in his slaying.
Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton says Friday that his decision comes after a "thorough review" of the police investigation into the Jan. 24 shooting death of 32-year-old Dustin Newton.
The woman said Newton returned home unexpectedly from work about 7:45 a.m. and that the couple's home recently had been broken into.
She told police Newton had taught her how to use the gun, which was registered to him.
Newton was shot in the neck. He worked at a local soda company.
Leyton says his office believes she "sincerely and reasonably believed the person entering her residence was a criminal intruder."
