Fla. stand your ground law focus of March rally

TAMPA — The parents of slain teen Jordan Davis say they will join the parents of slaying victim Trayvon Martin and the widow of a man shot to death in a Florida movie theater to talk with legislators in Tallahassee about the state's so-called stand your ground law.

Ron Davis and Lucia McBath said Wednesday they will visit Tallahassee on March 10 for a rally to protest the law.

Their son was shot by Michael Dunn, who was convicted earlier this month on multiple counts of attempted murder for shooting into a carful of teenagers outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012. However, the jury couldn't reach a verdict on the first-degree murder charge against Dunn in the death of teenager Jordan Davis. A mistrial was declared on that count.
