LOUISVILLE — The Kentucky Supreme Court heard oral arguments Wednesday on a 2006 law that broadly expands the right to self-defense.
The law, commonly called the castle doctrine, grants immunity to anyone who kills a home intruder in self-defense. But the law fails to address who decides whether a defendant is entitled to immunity, when that is supposed to happen and how that is supposed to occur.
Never miss a local story.
The Supreme Court grappled with those questions Wednesday in two Louisville homicide cases.
No rulings were made Wednesday. Opinions typically are not released until months after oral arguments.
