Police say North Carolina death was domestic violence

When a crime occurs in North Carolina and other areas of the country, there is an understandable desire for answers. Specifically, people often want someone to blame. But once a name is provided, unfortunately, some may not question the incident any further, assuming guilt rather than relying on a presumption of innocence that is guaranteed in criminal court proceedings. For example, a man is now in a precarious situation after he was accused of being involved in a domestic violence situation that led to a woman's death.

The incident happened just before 7 a.m. on a day in early September. According to reports, police arrived at a residence and discovered a 35-year-old woman who had been shot. First responders determined that she died at the scene.

Her 34-year-old long-term boyfriend was arrested as a result of her death. Though police say that he was arrested following a police interview, the contents of that interview are unclear. Reports claim that this is the 41st murder in Charlotte this year, and the eighth person killed as a result of domestic violence.

Regardless of the circumstances of a person's death, a person who has recently lost their long-term romantic partner may not be in the appropriate state to answer questions from law enforcement officials. In the best circumstances, people without legal training may not be fully aware of the impact that information provided to police may have. As such, those in North Carolina suspected of being involved in a domestic violence incident have the right to an attorney throughout all stages of an investigation, including before charges are even filed.
