Charges dropped in fatal shooting based on Stand Your Ground law
Pensacola man acted in self-defense when he shot two men, Judge rules

A judge has dismissed a murder charge under Florida’s Stand Your Ground law against a Pensacola man who shot and killed a man last year during a confrontation in his front yard.

Last April, Earl Moultrie Jr., 36, was charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 24-year-old Landi Benitez.

According to witness testimony, Benitez was part of a group that got into an argument with Moultrie near his home on Medford Avenue. The group reportedly followed Moultrie to his residence and threatened him and his family.

Moultrie told investigators that he fired a warning shot, then fatally shot Benitez as he approached him with a knife. Jose Joya, a 21-year-old acquaintance of Benitez, was also shot during the incident.
