Though the DA seems to have trying really hard to make it be otherwise. Jury returns not guilty verdict in “Mother’s Day” murder.
The jury deliberated and returned a verdict within 40 minutes.
So something must have been clear.
According to trial testimony, an altercation occurred at Shine’s residence, before the shooting took place.
The DA offered up every charge imaginable, namely second-degree murder and two counts of wanton endangerment, whatever that means. And his statement after the verdict strikes me as odd. But go take a look for yourself.
I guess WV doesn’t have a Castle Doctrine.
