Florida court upholds conviction in loud music killing case

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida appeals court is upholding the conviction of a white man who shot a Jacksonville teenager after an argument over loud music.

The 1st District Court of Appeal on Thursday rejected an argument from lawyers representing Michael Dunn that he was acting in self-defense when he killed Jordan Davis in November 2012.
