A Spokane jury affirmed the rights of gun owners to protect themselves on Thursday, acquitting Gail Gerlach of killing a man who was speeding away in Gerlach’s stolen SUV.

Tears fell on both sides of the courtroom as the not guilty verdict was read in the controversial case. Gerlach’s wife, Sharon, wept and embraced her family, as the grandmother of the man shot dead, Brendon Kaluza-Graham, burst into tears, saying her grandson would never get a chance to answer to a judge for his crime.
