Stand Your Ground

Stand Your Ground Hearing in 2008 Shooting of Federal Agent by Retiree

The sexagenerian was charged with manslaughter


A Miramar retiree who shot and killed an off-duty federal agent after a road-rage incident in 2008 will try to argue this week in Broward court that he is immune from prosecution under Florida's Stand Your Ground self-defense law.

Testimony was rescheduled to start Tuesday before Broward Circuit Judge Bernard Bober about whether Stand Your Ground applies to James Wonder, who shot U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent Donald Pettit after a heated argument while driving in Pembroke Pines.
