Bobby and Patricia Sexton have three daughters and live on her grand parent's property in Jacksonville, Texas. But when Bobby doesn't come home one evening, his worried wife Patricia files a missing person's report. Over a month later, police discover Bobby's body.

Tyler criminal defense attorney, Bobby Mims, said that Texas law can protect those who use deadly force when they reasonably fear for their life.


“Generally the law in Texas is that you may use deadly force in some instances," said Mims. "You have to have a right to be there wherever you are; you have to be lawfully carrying your firearm; and you have to be in fear of your life, protection of others, or property."
