    Default First degree murder

    Oklahoma pharmacist sentenced to life in teen's death | INFORUM | Fargo, ND

    Guilty of first degree murder for shooting the robber too many times.

    Prosecutors said Ersland was justified in firing the first shot but went too far when he grabbed a second gun and fired five more bullets into Parker's abdomen, wounds that the Medical Examiner's Office said killed him. Ersland claimed the unconscious teen was still moving.

    When someone puts a gun in your face you have two choices. You can get die or kill that SOB. I think I would have kept firing until I was sure he was down. Kill or be killed situation?

    Maybe it would have been better to just cower down, get robbed and shot? With that defense at least you wouldn't go to prison for the rest of your life just trying to save your arse.

    From what I have read this is an interesting story. The store video camera shows that he first shot the unarmed robber once in the head. Then he emptied his gun firing and missing the other robber, who was armed, as he ran out of the pharmacy. He then went back in the store and got a second gun and proceeded to put five more bullets in the wounded unarmed robber number one.

    The robbery was planned by two adult career criminals who were also sentenced to first degree murder for the teens death along with robber number two.
    Meanwhile, a different judge handed down separate life sentences to two men who authorities said helped plan the robbery and recruited the teens. Anthony Morrison, 45, and Emanuel Mitchell, 37, were charged under Oklahoma's felony murder law that allows prosecutors to file a first-degree murder charge if an accomplice dies during a crime. They were convicted on that and other charges.


    District Judge Kenneth Watson sentenced Morrison to life plus 30 years in prison and Mitchell to life plus 45 years. In sentencing Morrison, Watson said he recruited two teens to commit a crime that he wouldn't do.


    “You sent two kids,” the judge said. The second teen, Ingram, was sentenced to a state juvenile facility after pleading guilty to first-degree murder.
