Lawyer argues self-defense in road-rage shooting

CHICAGO – A lawyer for a Chicago man charged with murder in a road-rage incident said his client acted in self-defense when he fatally shot another motorist in the head.

Twenty-four-year-old Angelo Bennett is charged with murder, attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm in connection with last weekend’s confrontation.

His attorney, John Miraglia, said Bennett was attacked after a minor accident by the driver of the other car. Miraglia said the much larger man put Bennett in a headlock and hit him hard enough to leave a gash on the top of Bennett’s head.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Bennett was ordered held without bail Friday.

Prosecutors said Bennett shot Charles Jones twice in the head and shot and wounded the man’s fiancée as she tried to flee.
