Ten notable cases that focus on the often-blurry line between murder and self-defense.
A young hoodie-wearing man was shot and killed by a gun-wielding vigilante — who thought he might be catching a robber — in Florida last week. The shooter claims he acted in self-defense even though he shot the man in the back.
Michael Dunn, 45, of Brevard County Florida, allegedly shot up an SUV that was blaring loud music at a gas station, killing a teen.
A Cape Coral, Fla., man is under arrest for killing an unarmed door-to-door salesman who was on his property to sell steak and lobster tails. He later told police, “I was in fear.”
Tow-truck driver Donald Montanez, who was convicted of 3rd degree murder for the shooting of Glen “Chuck” Rich in March, had a sentencing hearing on Friday. The case was complicated by the fact that authorities have uncovered a web of lies showing that Donald Montanez does not legally exist.
