Interesting development in the wrongful death cases against Karen & Stuart Irby

Today, Karen Irby filed a cross-claim against Stuart Irby in the Hinds County Circuit Clerk's office.  She did so pro se, meaning without a lawyer.  In it, she claims that Stuart Irby "screamed at, threatened, attacked and assaulted" her, "causing and/or contributing to" the wreck that killed Drs. Dedousis and Pogue.

That's odd to me, because that sounds like a possible defense to the charges she pled guilty to...

Isn't that what the victims' families claimed at her sentencing? Maybe that gave her the idea. You're right though. Odd that people who couldn't possibly have known what went on inside that car make such a claim, while the only person who *was* inside that car who is not now suffering from amnesia didn't bring it up to save her butt.
