More than a month after the Lakeland City Commission voted to move the Confederate memorial from the center of downtown, fundraising has slowed and tensions continue.

A Florida woman who once had been sentenced to 20 years in a case that invoked the state's "stand your ground" law has accepted a plea deal that will see her released from prison in January.

Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville, Fla., was accused of firing what she said was a warning shot at her husband and two of his children during a domestic dispute in 2010. She was charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, convicted and sentenced under Florida's mandatory minimum guidelines.

Jurors in the retrial of Michael Dunn have found him guilty in the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis.

Jordan Davis’s father Ron Davis wiped away tears as Assistant State Attorney John Guy made his final statements before jury deliberations in the retrial of Michael Dunn Tuesday.

The fourth day of testimony in the Michael Dunn trial brought a lengthy end to the state's case and five new witnesses for the defense.

Forensic consultant Michael Knox testified that 17-year-old Jordan Davis’s car door was open and he may have been partially outside the vehicle when he was shot by Michael Dunn.

Jordan Davis leaned back and cowered in the moments before his death.

That’s the picture Assistant State Attorney John Guy painted before jurors on the first day of testimony in the retrial of Michael Dunn.

Guy gave his opening statements to the 12-member panel Thursday, recounting the last moments of Davis's life. The teen died after being shot by Dunn following a dispute over loud music playing from his friend's car at a Jacksonville gas station.

"Michael Dunn had had enough of the mouthy, audacious teen in front of him," Guy said.

After a lengthy first day, 42 people remain in the jury pool that could decide the fate of Michael Dunn for a second time.

Jury selection began around 10 a.m. Monday in the case.

Jury selection is set to begin for the second trial of a Florida man accused of killing a Georgia teenager during an argument over loud music outside a Jacksonville convenience store.

Attorneys for 47-year-old Michael Dunn want to move the trial away from Jacksonville, citing widespread publicity about the case. Circuit Judge Russell Healey has said he'll decide whether to move the trial during jury selection.

Earlier, jurors found Dunn guilty of attempted second-degree murder and firing into an occupied vehicle. They deadlocked on the first-degree murder charge.

Attorneys for Michael Dunn will have to wait a little longer to find out if his second murder trial will stay in Jacksonville.

The Michael Dunn case is of a type that we see with harrowing regularity. An unarmed black man is shot and killed by a police officer or a white person. The shooter says he felt threatened.

They're events that took just several minutes, but in a courtroom in Jacksonville, Fla., on Thursday, prosecutors and the defense laid out different versions of how Michael Dunn, who is white, came to shoot and kill Jordan Davis, a black teen.

It was in 2012, the day after Thanksgiving, that Davis, 17, and three friends stopped at a gas station and convenience store in Jacksonville. They were in an SUV and were playing their music — loud.
