A Florida judge has rejected PJ Nilaja Patterson's “stand your ground” defense saying he beat an iguana to death only after it attacked him, biting him on the arm. Prosecutors say Patterson “savagely beat, tormented, tortured, and killed” the 3-foot iguana (similar to the one shown here) in a half-hour attack caught on surveillance video. (Courier stock photo)
