12. It probably didn't help her cause much that, a few months after being released on bail,

 

she went back to the shootee's home and gave him a black eye.

“A few months after Alexander was released on bail on orders to have no contact with Gray, she got into an altercation with him at his home that gave him a black eye, Corey said. Alexander was charged with battery.

“Instead of her trying to work toward a resolution, about four months into this thing, claiming to be so afraid of this man, she went barging to his house and attacked him,” Corey said. “So it didn’t show much of her being remorseful of what happened and being a peaceful person.”

It probably also didn't help much that her attorney first claimed that she fired a warning shot into the ceiling but the initial point of impact showed that the bullet
"struck to the right of an archway between the kitchen and living room, where Gray (her husband) and his two young sons were."

Her husband, for some reason, seemed to think that she had shot at him.
