Man Gets Life in Prison for Killing Neighbors Over Dog Waste

A 76-year-old Dallas man charged with murder for the shooting deaths of his neighbors in a dispute over dog waste has been found guilty and sentenced to life in prison, NBC 5 has learned.

Jurors Thursday found Chung Kim guilty of fatally shooting Michelle Jackson as she stood on her apartment balcony in Dec., 2012.  Authorities said Kim then went upstairs to her apartment and shot and killed her boyfriend, Jamie Stafford.

Kim has said the couple's dog would use the balcony as a bathroom and when the neighbors would wash it, the urine and feces would stream down to his balcony.

He's insisted the shooting of Stafford was in self-defense. He's also said he doesn't remember shooting Jackson and that he could have suffered a blackout.
