Man kills teen burglars: Murder or self defense?

Was it self-defense or pre-meditated murder? That's the question at the heart of the Byron Smith case in Little Falls, Minnesota. Smith is on trial for first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of 18-year-old Haile Kifer and 17-year-old Nick Brady.

Prosecutors say that on Thanksgiving day 2012, Smith set up a trap and waited in the basement for the teens to break into his home. When they did, he shot Brady and Kifer several times. He told police he shot the teens after they were already wounded. He called the shot he fired at Kifer “a good clean finishing shot.”
