No, That Wasn't "Stand Yer Ground" in Montana

It was murder.
Markus Kaarma was sentenced to 70 years in prison Thursday morning for the murder of Diren Dede, a 17-year-old German exchange student who Kaarma shot in his Grant Creek garage last spring.
In case you've forgotten, Kaarma basically set a burglar trap.*

Tam had the right term: It was "hunting over a baited field."

Yes, saying "I was in fear for my life" might work in a self-defense situation. But not if the facts of the investigation prove otherwise.
* Is it wrong to say "Bad Kaarma"?
