A Montana jury found a homeowner guilty of killing a 17-year-old he found breaking into this garage, but jurors say the man lured the teen in order to kill him.
Markus Kaarma ran to check his garage on April 27 when a motion detector warned in o a possible problem. He went outside and almost immediately fired four shotgun blasts, killing 17-year-old Diren Dede, a German exchange student.
Prosecutors contended 30-year-old Kaarma was the aggressor and had purposefully lured an intruder into his garage in order to hurt him.
The jury found Kaarma guilty of deliberate homicide.
