BEND, Ore. (AP) - The man who shot and killed another person asleep inside a Bend home in 2012 is asking a court to throw out a wrongful death lawsuit against him.

The Bend Bulletin (https://bit.ly/2aCLx87) reports that the wrongful death lawsuit was filed a year ago seeking more than $500,000 in the death of 33-year-old Shane Munoz. The suit was filed by Munoz’s relatives.

Four year ago, Kevin Perry and Amanda Weinman had arrived at Perry’s home to find Munoz, a stranger to both of them, asleep on the couch. Perry told police he grabbed a gun and shot Munoz after the intruder attacked him.

A Deschutes County District Attorney last year found Perry to be justified in the shooting.

The lawsuit claims that Munoz hadn’t posed a threat to Perry or Weinman and that he was killed recklessly.
