Courthouse Brawl Goes Down After 'Stand Your Ground' Hearing Postponed!
Published on July 10, 2012
OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. - WFTV was the only television station there when a fight broke out Monday at the Osceola County courthouse between families connected to a double-murder case. Jason Clair is accused of shooting and killing James and Joel Kun outside a St. Cloud night club last year. Clair said he killed the two brothers in self-defense. The defense said the Stand Your Ground hearing was postponed so new gun evidence could be reviewed. Relatives on both sides had shown up as witnesses for the hearing, but after it was canceled, the fight broke out outside the courtroom. Investigators said the brothers' father, James Kun Sr., their friend, Jeremy Milyon and defendant Jason Clair's stepfather, James Barker, became involved in an argument, which then led to a physical altercation. Court deputies and a St. Cloud police officer intervened, and all three suspects were taken into custody.
