Castle doctrine affirms rights to protect hearth and home

By Linda Ireland

The trial for a Magnolia man accused of murder has been delayed as the Kentucky Supreme Court decides the constitutionality of the castle doctrine.

David S. McFarland, 45, faces charges of murdering 22-year-old Sabrina Shirley at his home in July 2007. Officers said he shot Shirley, his former stepdaughter, in the face as she stood on the porch of his home. McFarland told police she became violent prior to the shooting.
