          And such a devastating rebuke it was.

          .....................................
          An appeals court has overturned a Cleveland man’s murder conviction, saying his jury wasn’t properly instructed on the “castle doctrine” that allows people to use deadly force in their home.
          Arrested , prosecuted , convicted .
          It took jurors less than an hour to decide Thursday that they didn't believe a former York City woman's claim that she mistook her live-in boyfriend for an intruder when she shot him at least seven times, killing him.

          The Iowa Court of Appeals has upheld the murder conviction of a northwest Iowa woman found guilty 10 years after the crime.

          Tracey Richter claimed she shot 20-year-old Dustin Wehde in self-defense in 2001. She told police two or three intruders had entered her home and she was trying to protect her three children when she shot and killed Wehde.

                  This exchange has become so very boring , I don't care anything about you or what you think or say .
                  You are just a person who thinks its ok to kill unarmed , non threatening kids . You have nothing interesting to say . It just is small little bs games at best . I just feel sorry for you .

                    Iowa case, your (unprovided) link: " prosecutors said there was no home invasion"
                    Way to compare a home invasion to 'no home invasion'.

                    Can't believe you didn't provide a link for it....or your Newsmax sourcing. Weird.

                    Please. More. ;)

                      to derail and throw enough shit in the hope some sticks.....he also hopes no one reads them carefully as they are usually so full of flat out lies and blatant contradictions they end up a parody of their self and their author.....

                      Plus ignoring them really eats their ass.......
