Trial begins for man accused of killing cousin over DVDs

Kenny Dewayne Adams Kenny Dewayne Adams
LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A Limestone County judge rejected Kenny Adams' attempts to use the stand your ground defense last week.

Adams is charged with murder.Investigators say Adams stabbed his cousin Yancy Foster on December 31, 2012.

A judge heard the defendant's motion to drop the indictment for murder because he was acting in self-defense. Authorities said the stabbing stemmed over Adams loaning the Foster family copies of "Fast and Furious" DVDs.

The defendant filed a motion seeking dismissal of the indictment alleging that he is immune from prosecution under the state's stand your ground law.

His request was denied.
