Murder trial finishes second day of testimony

The third day of testimony in the trial of Michael Loren Jacobs, 57, charged in the June 24, 2015, shooting death of his landlord, 75-year-old Floyd Flud, will begin Thursday morning.


On Wednesday afternoon, Jacobs, who pleaded not guilty, testified on his own behalf. He told the jury he killed Flud in self-defense after Flud attempted to shoot him. Hood County Sheriff’s investigators testified Monday the injuries to Flud and Jacobs were not consistent with self-defense.

The case is being heard in the 355th District Court in Granbury.
