SC: Murder trial puts focus on land rights

Yahoo! News

“Bullet holes still pepper a small house on the outskirts of town where two law officers died in a gunbattle over a patch of land the state wanted to take for a highway project. Property rights advocates will be watching closely Monday as jury selection begins for the murder trial of Steven Bixby, a 39-year-old New Hampshire transplant who officials say threatened violence against any officer who set foot on his land. … Some of the property rights advocates who have made Bixby’s case a minor cause celebre, saying he had the right to defend the 20-foot parcel, were expected to attend the trial.” (02/04/07)
