...The shooting occurred in the early-morning darkness of Oct. 11, after Dghoughi stopped his car near Turner's house in the 100 block of Tina's Trail in Martindale, roughly 35 miles south of Austin. The Caldwell County Sheriff's Office said Turner "confronted a suspicious vehicle parked outside the residence."

Turner reportedly told investigators that he had noticed a car in his driveway in the middle of the night, when he had awoken to use the bathroom, according to local media outlets that cite an affidavit supporting the arrest warrant.

At that time, the headlights on Dghoughi's Audi were off. But as Turner fetched a handgun and headed outside, the lights came on and the car "began to rapidly accelerate in reverse," according to Austin TV station KXAN.

Turner ran after the car, smacking its window. He then fired his gun at the driver. ...

Sounds like murder to me.

But maybe that's not how it sounds in Texas.

Does Texas have a "stand your ground" law?

Even if it does, chasing after the car to shoot the person would, imo, negate any stand your ground aspect to this.

He was an Audi driver, so justified kill.

"Police first refused to arrest or charge Turner. They finally did & he's out on bond."

You can post bail on a capital crime in Texas?
Holy ----.

There was no threat. In seeing car in his driveway call the police. This isn't even stand your ground material. Bad decision.

"Murder" is not a "capital" crime in Texas.

Okay. It's a crime for which capital punishment can be applied, which is what I was getting at.

"Capital punishment" refers to a death sentence.

"Murder" is not subject to a death sentence in Texas.

""Murder" is not subject to a death sentence in Texas."

Actually, it is. There is no other state crime that can receive capital punishment in Texas.

Actually, it is not.

Texas distinguishes between "Murder" and "Capital Murder. Only Capital Felonies are punishable by death.

The sentence for "Murder" depends on the degree i.e. whether it's a 1st, 2nd or 3rd degree felony. See Title 3, Chapter 12, Subchapter C.

Et Al is a pompous ass. What a tool. First degree murder can be punished with the death penalty in Texas. Duh? He's just gasbagging to seem all important and stuff.

It's sad actually.

This case is second degree murder so he's kinda right tho'.

Give a big hand to Et Al, the lawyer of the DR. Lol.

He definitely needed to be charged but why do you call him a bigot?
