(Khill-Trial)

Indigenous leaders are shocked and disappointed by a Hamilton jury's decision to acquit a man in the shooting death of a nearby Six Nations resident who broke into his truck.

Twenty-eight-year-old former military member Peter Khill admitted he killed Jon Styres at around 3 a-m on February 4th, 2016, but pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, claiming he fired in self-defence when he thought Styres was pointing a gun at him.
