Father kills daughter's boyfriend over the 'One Drop Rule'', Gets 15yrs prison
Shannon Kepler was convicted of first-degree manslaughter on Wednesday. The ex-cop was on trial for the fourth time for the 2014 fatal shooting of his daughter's black boyfriend, Jeremy Lake, 19. Kepler was off-duty when he shot Lake and told investigators he fired because he thought the teen had a gun.
But police found no gun on Lake or at the scene of the fatal shooting. Kepler said he was trying to protect his daughter, Lisa Kepler, because she was living in a crime-ridden neighborhood. Jurors in Kepler's previous three trials deadlocked 11-1, 10-2 and 6-6, forcing the judge to declare mistrials.
