It's a thought, but I don't think it's a persuasive argument. Consider the way it was reported in the article:

She testified that she went back into the house, where Gray was with his two sons, and fired the shot.
This tells me that the kids were not HER kids -- and the article doesn't tell us how old the "kids" were. The husband was 36 years old -- that's old enough for the "kids" to be adults.
