David Carlson from upstate New York is on trial for his life. He's charged of shooting dead a wanted child rapist who admitted to having sex with a 14-year-old girl.
The 46-year-old spotted Norris Acosta-Sanchez, 35, on his property while fishing, and the 35-year-old first introduced himself as "Daniel Costa," claiming he was the "care-taker" of an empty cabin on the neighboring property.
However, about a month later Norris reportedly confessed that he was not who he had claimed, and that he was wanted in the nearby town of Ramapo after being accused of sleeping with a 14-year-old girl. David claims that Norris then, confessed to being a child rapist.
David decided to TURN HIM in to the law, and pulled a shotgun on him. Acosta-Sanchez allegedly lunged at him and the 46-year-old pulled the trigger hitting his target in the head.
Norris died immediately, and David was taken into custody.
If he's found guilty of murder - he faces 20 years in prison.
