Alabama's Stand Your Ground law may free a man

Good morning!

Here's what we're working on in the WAFF newsroom:

A Limestone County man convicted of killing his nephew could end up a free man.

Investigators say Keith George shot his nephew after a fight at a family gathering back in 2009.  The Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals threw out the conviction citing Alabama's Stand Your Ground law.

George's bond is set at 50- thousand dollars, and a new trial date has not been set.

This morning we're also keeping a close eye on the second American infected with ebola.

Nancy Writebol is at Emory University hospital in Atlanta receiving treatment.  Reports say she's weak but showing signs of improvement.

She and Doctor Kent Brantly helped take care of people with the deadly virus in Liberia when they became sick.  Writebol's family says they're happy with her progress.
