Followup WY: Mapp Found Not Guilty of Murder in Abeyta Shooting
Mapp and Abeyta began arguing after Mapp returned to the house from buying alcohol with Abeyta’s girlfriend, witnesses said. Abeyta accused the two of having an affair and reportedly threatened to kill Mapp.
Mapp retrieved a .38-caliber revolver from his car and pointed it at Abeyta while urging him to “stop,” Johnson said. She claimed Abeyta lunged for the gun and Mapp pulled the trigger.
