DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A judge has rejected the self-defense claims of two brothers in the slaying of a man during a confrontation in a Daytona Beach neighborhood.
On Monday, Circuit Judge Margaret Hudson denied the "stand your ground" argument by Ray and Wayne Greenlaw, who claimed they feared for their lives when they opened fire on Brian Leverett and slashed his friend, Justin Riley in 2011.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://bit.ly/KuWABw ) reports the judge noted that Greenlaws didn't call 911 when they left their home seeking Riley and Leverett. She also noted that in initial interviews with investigators, neither mentioned that the victims had weapons.
Officials say Wayne Greenlaw fired 15 rounds from his rifle while his brother fired several rounds from a pistol. Both are being held in the Volusia County Jail.
