Time to test fire the Castle Doctrine again...

From right here in Columbus...

Intruder shot and killed during break-in

Lets see if the Castle Doctrine (SB 184 in Ohio) can pass the acid test once again in this particular case.

Details from the report are scarce, but it seems it was a home invasion that was thwarted. The incident is going before a grand jury to see if there will be an indictment. My initial reaction based on the info provided will be "No".

OK, new info coming in on this, seems like the residence in question was infamous in the neighborhood for assorted activities (read between the lines as drug activities to me). does the castle doctrine apply when the home is being used for illegal, high risk activity? This might be interesting.
