Woman who beat boyfriend with radio lied about rape, attacker. Woman told detectives she saw a man beat her boyfriend with the radio. After her boyfriend was knocked unconscious, the man raped her and left, she told police. She then confessed she beat him with the radio. http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/news/stories.nsf/stlouiscitycounty/story/E63A6DBA0F6058D1862575370056C530?OpenDocument Woman is in custody. The article doesn't say why she beat him up. Man is still in hospital. Do you think this is a case of self defense?

I'd have to question the "self defense theory" simply because if it was ...why the need to lie? I am more leaning toward the idea that she was just out of control and/or jealous. but i'm guessing that there was something that set her off and I just don't buy that it was self-defense.

I think it could be anything. It could be self defense or just a silly lover's quarrel that became violent. Only time and investigation could tell. Cheers and happy Mylotting

That is something else. I don't know what the heck is wrong with people these days. It could have possibly been self defense and she was scared to say that she actually did it.

I think the man should be ashamed of getting beat up by his girlfriend. Then again, I think he should leave the violent woman well enough alone from this point forward. Crazy is as crazy does.

Well she said that it was because they were arguing...maybe the argument just heated up. Some people can become violent in such situation.

I seriously doubt it for 2 reasons. First she must have hit him from behind otherwise he would have been able to easily say she did it & the story would have fallen apart. Second she would have had to continue the attack while he was unconscious & made up this story. She wanted to hurt him & not get penalized for it.

Sounds like she got scared and fibbed. I don't know but something had to have gotten her upset enough to knock him out. She must have forgotten about the rape kits they want people to do. If she told them in the beginning it happened because he assaulted her I am sure she would have maybe not ended up in jail like that just goes to show always tell the truth. I couldn't view the link said it couldn't be found..might just be my computer though.

Was her boyfriend able to twist his head around ala Linda on The Exorcist? Unless the guy was facing her, it is not a case of self defense. I suppose she wanted to play the innocent victim. Maybe he did not take out the garbage and did not cook the meals the way he wanted to. Maybe he said, he was leaving, but that was no excuse for her to hit him with the radio. I wonder if it is one of those old fashioned ones, they are quite heavy.

I doubt it. I mean, if this was self defense, then why lie about it? I say this woman is abusive, and just wasn't getting her way. Most people fail to realize that domestic violence isn't simply a man hitting a woman, it works the other way as well. Women can be just as violent towards their mate as men can be, only it isn't reported as much because of male egos and the fear of not being believed.
