Defense for Alabama murder suspect cites 'stand your ground' law

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 07:38
(Reuters) - An Alabama man charged with stabbing his cousin to death inside the victim's home was lawfully standing his ground, his lawyers told jurors in a trial that concluded its second day on Tuesday, while prosecutors called him a murderer. Kenny Dewayne Adams, 36, is charged with one count of murder in the Dec. 31, 2012, death of Yancy Metz Foster, 34, who was his cousin and neighbor. Alabama is among more than 20 states that have enacted a "stand your ground" self-defense law since Florida's contentious measure took effect in 2005. Limestone County District Attorney Brian Jones said the incident appeared to stem from Adams lending Foster a DVD box set of the first two installments in "The Fast and the Furious" movie franchise that the defendant was eager to retrieve, Adams' true source of anger, however, may have been a suspected affair between his wife and the victim, Jones said.
