Self-defense is Legal in Kentucky

They wanted to see someone who moved away years ago. Talk about a stupid mistake. No charges for northern KY man who fatally shot intruder at his home.

It happened Tuesday around 1:30 a.m. at a residence on West 7th Street. Police say Kersey and two accomplices entered the home and demanded to see a person who hasn’t lived there for years.

The homeowner, 54-year-old Floyd Gillie Sr., shot Kersey and the two other suspects fled.

Kentucky has a version of the Castle Doctrine.

Self-defense is a Human-right.
