Brett Parker is claiming self-defense is being charged with two counts of murder. He claims that Bryan Capnerhurst, 46, came to his house looking to collect $20,000 in winnings from an illegal card game and shot his wife. Parker claims he then shot and killed Capnerhurst.
Prosecutors say Parker killed his wife to try to collect more than $1 million in insurance money and retirement accounts. Police said Parker ran a gambling ring from his home and Capnerhurst came to the house to collect about $20,000 from bets and parker didn't want to pay off.
