Woman kills rapist when he threatens to rape and murder her daughter (graphic)

November 5, 2006
Ball Ground, Georgia
A single mother of 3 is beaten, stabbed, and raped in front of her 7-year-old daughter before she stabs her attacker to death

The attacker was Gerald A. Lee, an acquaintance of the victim. The two had gone to high school together around 20 years before but lost touch, reconnecting just weeks before the attack.

On November 5, Lee broke a window in the kitchen to unlock the door and held a rifle to the woman’s head. When it jammed, he beat her with it. He also stabbed her at least 25 times, poured boiling water on her, and raped her; most of the attack was witnessed by the woman’s 7 year old daughter.

Lee placed the daughter in a closet. When she moved from the closet into a bathroom, Lee, naked and covered in blood, instructed her not to leave. He then returned to the mother and told her to call the daughter so he could rape and murder her in front of the woman. Instead, she played dead. As Lee went to go upstairs to get the child, the woman grabbed a knife and stabbed him in the chest before telling her daughter to lock herself in a bedroom and only open the door when police arrive. The struggle continued with Lee being stabbed several more times until he stumbled out into the yard and died.
