LAREDO, Texas (AP) - The trial of a man accused of executing a
boy who broke into his Laredo home looking for snacks -- has many
in the border city outraged.
They're upset because the man is being prosecuted for murder
over the July 2007 killing.
The trial of 63-year-old Jose Luis Gonzalez could wrap up
tomorrow.
Gonzalez had endured several break-ins when four boys, ranging
in age from 11-15, got into his trailer to rummage for chips and
soda.
Gonzalez, who was in a nearby building, had a shotgun. He went
into the trailer and confronted the boys.
The unarmed boys claim they were begging for forgiveness when
Gonzalez hit them with the barrel of the shotgun and kicked them.
A medical examiner testified 13-year-old Francisco Anguiano was
shot in the back.
Gonzalez attorney Isidro "Chilo" Alaniz says his client was
acting in self-defense.
