CINCINNATI — A woman is charged with murder after she allegedly stabbed a man, who then ran into a nearby home in Lincoln Heights and was shot and killed by the homeowner.
According to court documents, on September 19, Ebony Stenson stabbed Henri Jennings' neck with a box cutter during an argument the two were having in a car. When Jennings fled the vehicle, Stenson allegedly tried to run him over.
Jennings was able to escape and ran into a nearby home in the 900 block of Chamberlain Avenue.
According to investigators, the homeowner was watching TV when Jennings came in.
Officials said the homeowner dialed 911 as the incident was unfolding, saying, "We heard someone yelling for help. He came in our house."
Law enforcement officials said the homeowner feared for his life and shot Jennings three times. He crawled out of the house and died on the front steps.
The homeowner who shot and killed Jennings will not face charges, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.
The shooting, officials said, is a case where Ohio’s Stand Your Ground Law can be applied.
Stenson is being held on a $750,000 bond.
In court Wednesday morning her attorney said it was self-defense and that she was not responsible for the shooting that killed Jennings.
She will be back in court on October 7.
