White woman who fatally shot black mom-of-four in front of her son is charged with manslaughter

A white woman accused of shooting and killing a black mother-of-four over a dispute involving the slain woman’s children has been arrested and charged four days after the incident.

Susan Louise Lorincz, 58, was charged Tuesday, with manslaughter with a firearm, culpable negligence, battery, and two counts of assault, Marion County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement released in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

‘The justice we have all been seeking has been served,’ Sheriff Billy Woods said in a video posted Tuesday. It follows public pressure on police to take action over the killing after authorities first said they had to take time to determine what role Florida’s ‘stand your ground’ law might play in the incident.

Lorincz, who is white, is accused of fatally shooting Ajike ‘AJ’ Owens through a closed door in Ocala on Friday night.

It’s alleged that Lorincz threw a roller skate at one of Ms. Owens’ children and swung an umbrella at another during a heated exchange before they went to tell their mother.

Ms. Owens reportedly then went across the street to speak with the neighbor after hearing of the incident, at which point Lorincz is accused of firing through her door, shooting the mother-of-four. Ms Owens later died at a hospital from her injuries.

Ms Owens children had been playing in a field near an apartment complex in Ocala, Florida, on Friday when Lorincz ‘began yelling at them to get off her land and calling them racial slurs,’ renowned civil rights attorney Ben Crump said.

The children then accidentally left an iPad behind after leaving the field – although police said it was a pair of skates before going back to fetch it, Crump explained.

According to police Lorincz ‘engaged in an argument with the children’ that was overheard by a neighbor.

‘During this argument, Lorincz threw a roller skate at Ms Owens’ 10-year-old son, striking the child in the toe,’ the statement said.

‘After this, when the child and his 12-year-old brother went to speak to Lorincz, she opened her door
