IL: Followup Arvin Freeman found to be Justified in the Shooting Death of Robert Woods

EDWARDSVILLE — A judge on Monday acquitted an Alton man of first degree murder and unlawful discharge of a firearm because he was defending his home.

Judge Neil Schroeder on Monday ruled that Arvin Freeman, 46, of Alton was justified in shooting Robert Woods, 30, of Springfield, Missouri, in the rear on Feb. 13, 2021. Woods died from bleeding caused by the shot.

Schroeder said a person is justified in using deadly force if they believe it is necessary to prevent an attack on their home.
