Delauter pleaded guilty to a charge of domestic assault in September and there was an active order of protection in place to keep him from contacting his wife, Lee Ann Delauter.

The investigation revealed that Delauter, who was living near Rutherford, Tennessee, parked his vehicle about a half mile from Lee Ann Delauter’s home.

He then broke into the home and assaulted Lee Ann with a knife and fired more than one shot at her with a semi-automatic firearm, according to Captain McGowan.

However, Lee Ann Delauter was no rendered defenseless. She had her own gun in her bedroom. She shot back, hit, and killed him.

The case will be presented to the January Term of the Weakley County Grand Jury.

Don’t let yourself be caught in the cross hairs without a way to defend yourself. If you don’t already have one, go out and get a firearm now.
