It did not end well for a man who allegedly violated a protection order against him, unlawfully entering the home of a woman described as the mother of his child. The woman, who told police she was sitting in her garage smoking a cigarette when the man intruded by walking through her front door, called 9-1-1 after shooting him. The man was found lying down in the garage. The shooting was still under investigation, although Ohio is a Castle Doctrine state that now includes a provision that shifts the burden of proof in self-defense cases from the defense to the prosecution. The change requires prosecutors prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the person who used deadly force did not do so in self-defense, defense of another or defense of the person’s residence.
