No, I think you are right. Yates attacked and tried to kill an adult female, as you say. She committed the grave error of trying to earn an honest living.
Anyway, my mistake. Thanks for the correction.
Well, maybe Yates will turn up in a similar news story some day. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Bastard.
It’s a real shame his victim wasn’t a concealed-carry permit holder. Then the grave error would have been him trying to harm her.
