US woman escapes raid death charge

A US woman who shot dead an intruder after asking the emergency services for permission will not face charges, but the man's alleged accomplice will.

Eighteen year-old Sarah McKinley, who was widowed recently, was at home with her baby in Oklahoma on New Year's Eve when 24 year-old Justin Martin broke in, armed with a knife.

In her conversation with the emergency services, Ms McKinley is heard asking "Is it ok to shoot?"
