Lake Forest, CA—Get that vision of Charles Bronson’s character, Paul Kersey out of your head, this one is definitely different. 26 year-old, Alex Reyes, was shot twice and died on Sunday at a hospital from a bullet wound to his head. Reyes was in the process of making a court supervised visit of his his 18-month-old son. The supervised visits were ordered after Reyes was accused of sexually molesting the boy.
The great-grandmother, Jeane Ellen Allen allegedly drew a handgun without warning and shot Reyes twice from the front porch of their home. Allen is being held for investigation of 1st Degree Murder at the Orange County Jail on $1,000,000 bail.
With all the hype about child molesting Allen can be counted on being viewed as a heroic protector of her great-grand son. Between the motive and her age I see a made for TV movie coming down the pike. The big question I have is, will the Orange County prosecutor actually find a jury willing to convict the old gal?
Granny spilled her guts to reprters from the L.A. Times.
