Prosecutors: Cape Coral man’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ story doesn’t add up

CAPE CORAL, Fla. –

A Cape Coral man charged in the murder of another was in court Tuesday.

Police arrested 27-year-old Ryan Doyon on second-degree murder charges. The arrest is the first homicide arrest made in 2017 by CCPD. 

The judge refused to set a bond at Doyon’s first appearance hearing.

“I believe the facts show that he’s a great danger to the community,” said the prosecutor.

They said it’s clear that Doyon was not acting in self-defense as he has claimed.

“The one neighbor who gave a statement saw the victim knocking on the door and then just moments after, the defendant running after the victim for a great length of time shooting at his back,” the prosecutor said.

Police responded Monday morning to 1914 Cornwallis Parkway for a shooting.

When they arrived, police said they found the victim, a white male, lying

Family member calls woman who killed mom ‘an animal’ – Story

FORT MITCHELL, Ky. — The Independence woman convicted of murdering her mother had hurt her mother in the past, but the mother never pressed charges, according to the killer’s sisters.

Lara Conley was sentenced to 27 years in prison Thursday for killing her mother, Carlene. Police said Carlene Conley was found dead from more than 70 stab wounds in their home March 15, 2015.

Ann Gorman, one of Conley’s sisters, said Conley lived with their mother.

“My sister was erratic, but my mother was never a violent person,” Gorman said. “She would never lay a hand on my sister, so some of the things that they were saying were a little hurtful, and we want our mom to be remembered as the great, loving woman that she was.”

Prosecutors said Conley was the one who stabbed her mother dozens of times. Conley had initially reported the incident as a home invasion, but Read more at: http://www.wcpo.com/news/crime/family-member-calls-woman-who-killed-mom-an-animal

Independence woman found guilty of murdering her mother – Story

COVINGTON, Ky. — A Kenton County jury took four hours to find Lara Conley guilty of murder Thursday in the stabbing death of her mother.

Police said Conley’s mother, Carlene, was found dead from dozens of stab wounds in her Independence home March 15, 2015.

“The facts of this case were extremely gruesome,” said Kenton County assistant Commonwealth attorney Maria Schletker. “Hearing any sort of murder in a community that we feel is generally safe is always pretty startling.”

According to Schletker and co-prosecutor Lawrence Hilton, Conley called 911 and initially reported the incident as a home invasion, but changed her story during questioning to claim that she had acted in self-defense.

After hearing testimony from more than 30 witnesses, many of them police officers who had worked on the case, the jury found Conley guilty and recommended a 27-year prison sentence.

Hilton said Carlene Conley’s other daughters and grandchildren were in the courtroom during
