Mollie Fitzgerald is popular for her role in "Captain America: The First Avenger," however, she is not popular on a murder case. The actress who was arrested weeks ago after stabbing her mother to death in Kansas, is pleading not-guilty to the crime. According to the actress, the only reasons why she did it, was because she was afraid for her life and was trying to defend herself. The actress was arrested on New Year's Eve after a call was placed to the police station


Speaking to the police about the incident, Fitzgerald mentioned that her mother was coming close to her with a knife in her hand, and her next instinct was to protect herself.

According to the police report on the case, Fitzgerald first tried to disarm her 68-year-old mother who was proving to be aggressive at the time, and this led to a four-time stab wound on her back. Immediately the cops arrived at the scene, Patricia Fitzgerald was found in a pool of her own blood with the knife still at her back.


Aside from Patricia's lifeless body, the medical department treated Fitzgerald on the scene after seeing small cuts on her palms and bite marks on one of her arm. She was also given a tetanus shot immediately to keep her out of danger. Although the police listened to what Fitzgerald had to say, things turned around for the actress when the forensics department came back with an autopsy.

According to the department, Patricia may have been the one trying to prevent herself from getting killed in the altercation.


The reports on the forensic evidence reveals that the deceased had deep cuts on her hands, bruising on the lip, face and neck. According to the department, these were definitely signs of defensive injuries.
