    KY - Bonnie, 45, & son Leon Porter, 28, killed each other, Louisville, 5 July 2007

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Police are calling the causes of death for two people found dead together in an apartment in Louisville a double homicide.

    Metro police said a mother, Bonnie Porter, 45, and her son, Leon Porter, 28, were found dead in the apartment Thursday. Investigators said the son fired several rounds at the mother and, while defending herself, she shot him in the head, resulting in both their deaths.

    Sad. I could not and would not kill my child even if it were in self-defense...if I were just protecting myself that is. It would be different if he were trying to kill someone else, but not just me.

    I couldn't kill my child either. I would just die with a broken heart.

    Those of you who can't imagine killing your child surely don't have a child that would try to kill you!

    In a rare moment we agree!

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I tend to think it took two to tango and a mother who raised a person like that was just as guilty.

    According to the news report, he was mentally ill. I don't see how she can be blamed for that.

    --true she can't be "blamed" for that--but she may be at blame for other things--or perhaps he was to blame--we don't know anything about their history--anyway, "mental illness" is never an excuse for murder
