Kentucky Self-Defense Law Put To The Test

On Wednesday, Kentucky’s new self-defense law that allows people to shoot dangerous home invaders without fear or prosecution will be put to the test.

The Kentucky Supreme Court is scheduled to hear two cases involving the law.

In both cases, lawyers are trying to overturn murder and manslaughter convictions against men attorneys claim acted in self defense.
