Man can’t avoid trial using ‘stand your ground’

Sixth Judicial District Judge Paul Miller ruled Friday that 23-year-old Lamar Wilson’s case must first be heard by a jury. Wilson is charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder and intimidation with a dangerous weapon in connection with an Aug. 27 shooting that killed one man and injured two others.
