A California Highway Patrol officer charged with fatally shooting her husband is being sued by her stepson.

Marcus Lemons' teenage son, Demarco Lemons, sued Officer Tomiekia Johnson last year for wrongful death after the 2009 shooting, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Johnson has pleaded not guilty to shooting her 31-year-old husband, saying she acted in self defense.

She was arrested last week after a long investigation.

Johnson is being held on $2 million bail.
