CHESTERFIELD, S.C. – A circuit court judge ruled Wednesday that South Carolina’s Stand Your Ground law does not apply in the case of a Chesterfield County man who fatally shot another man during an altercation last summer.

Circuit Judge Henry James ruled that 58-year-old George Monroe Gaskins is not immune from prosecution under the S.C. Protection of Persons and Property Act and therefore can be tried for murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime in connection with the August 2013 shooting death of 47-year-old Gerald “Chris” Turner.
