Sandra Layne described herself as an overwhelmed grandmother who took Jonathan Hoffman into her Detroit-area home after his parents divorced and moved to Arizona. She said she ‘‘adored’’ the 17-year-old, but their relationship changed when the teen got involved with drugs. Layne's lawyer says she feared for her life because of Hoffman's erratic behavior and his use of synthetic marijuana
Authorities said Layne fired 10 shots, striking Hoffman six times, even while he was on the phone with 911 begging for help from their West Bloomfield Township home.
