    I don't get this. Doesn't it seem like the guy with the rifle would have won this fight. Why would a guy holding a rifle just sit there and do nothing while someone is beating him with a sledgehammer. He could've stopped that dude by shooting him in the leg or something. Unless the gun wasn't loaded, this doesn't make any sense.

    From July 2008:

    A man accused of bludgeoning his roommate to death with a sledgehammer took an offer of 30 years in prison in Circuit Court Thursday in exchange for pleading guilty to second-degree murder...

    A Vietnam War veteran, [Matthews] liked to hunt, fish and ride his motorcycle. He had first met Crow at Ma Barkers Hideaway, a bar popular with bikers in Ocklawaha... He had taken Crow in as a roommate, and provided for him by feeding him, giving him "a roof over his head," and even bringing him to his family's Thanksgiving gathering...

    Matthews suffered a fractured skull, broken fingers on his left hand, and grave wounds to the head and face. His body could only be identified through a set of fingerprints already on record.
