Followup: Karl Hormann found Justified in Shooting of Brandon Smith
A Houston jury on Monday found a Seabrook optometrist not guilty of murder in the 2013 shooting death of a neighbor.
Karl Hormann, 56, testified that he acted in self-defense when he shot 36-year-old Brandon Smith after a Memorial Day weekend crawfish boil in 2013.
Hormann's attorneys told jurors that the eye doctor feared for his life and for the lives of his guests when he followed Smith off the lake property and into the street.
