What's your question?
You're charged, don't talk to the police and get a lawyer asap!
Always consult a local attorney before acting on any legal opinions or advice you find here, or on the internet, generally.
First find an experienced criminal defense lawyer to help you. You are presumptive for prison with these charges. Second do not talk about the facts with anyone but your lawyer. Do not post anything more about the facts. What you post can be used against you just as what you say.
You may have a self defense claim. The difficulty is that you are not allowed to start the altercation and then claim self defense. You may not threaten to use deadly force when the threat against you is not severe. Self defense has an objection and a subjective portion. Your attorney will be able to explain all this to you in detail. The important thing is for you to get an attorney immediately.
