A US man has been sentenced to four decades in prison after being found guilty of murdering his neighbour.
Raul Rodriguez, from Texas, shot teacher Kelly Danaher after an argument about a noisy party.
He had argued that a state law known as “stand your ground” allowed him to shoot the 36-year-old.
A similar defence is also being used by a Florida neighbourhood watch volunteer who shot dead unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February.
The “stand your ground” doctrine grants individuals scope to use deadly force if they feel seriously in danger.
