A WOMAN who claimed self-defense in 2018 after killing her alleged rapist is getting a chance to share her story through Netflix.
Brittany Smith was thrown in jail after shooting Todd Smith – a man she thought she knew.
Where did Brittany and Todd Smith meet?
Contrary to popular initial belief, Brittany Smith and Todd Smith were, in fact, not related.
Brittany Smith, 34, is a mother of four from Stevenson, Alabama, while Joshua ‘Todd’ Smith was a 38-year-old who lived in Jasper, Tennessee, at the time of his death.
In 2018, Brittany reconnected with Todd – who was allegedly an old friend of hers.
According to The Appeal, the pair met each other when they were teenagers and had gotten back in contact because Brittany was in the market for a dog.
She had called Todd, a pit bull breeder, to buy a puppy he was selling and ended up letting him crash at her place after hearing he was homeless.
Brittany’s brother, Chris McCallie, told The New Yorker in a 2020 interview, “I just had a gut feeling that something was going to happen,” he said.
After an argument with Todd regarding the meth crisis gripping their community, he proceeded to brutally beat and raped her before the altercation ended in his death.
