Did Anger Play a Role?

State Attorney Angela Corey, who oversaw Alexander's prosecution and who also presided over Zimmerman's case, said that "Stand Your Ground" didn't apply "because Alexander acted in anger," NBC news reported. The judge said that by returning to the house, her actions did not match those of a person in “genuine fear of his or her life.
