It may have been considered self defense.

He claimed he had a gun in his possession that his his father had given him earlier in the day or week. Said he was sitting in a car minding his own business (haha), and that Ray Barnes approached the car and started an argument, and that he remembered he had the gun and fired it in self defense. The real reason he wasn't convicted of murder was that Barnes was a notorious character around here and everyone hated him, especially the cops. But that's no reason for it NOT to be a crime to kill him, is it?

Stewart got off with a slap because his parents were "respectable" people, and the guy he shot was a nobody hoodlum.

For everyone who commented on here. Who obviously has no clue to why he committed the crime he committed need to mind your own business. Ask someone who actually KNOWS Orlando or better yet... If you really wanted to know you could've asked him.
Owensboro is so tiny and everyone is so caught up in everyone's business, but their own... Then y'all wonder why the town is the way it is. I've never met or seen sooo many people in other people business and don't even have their life together! Get YOUR Life!!!!

I knew both of them and Ray beat Stew down a few days before. Stew left the tennis courts when Ray punked him and came back with a gun and killed Ray. That's what happened. It was murder but Stew got off because he hit a last second shot to send OHS to the state tournament sending Rex Chapman and Apollo home.

Ray was a tough guy but always was cool to me. I was a white dude at OHS and Bones always was nice and treated me with respect. The story I heard was that Stewart owed Bones money and got punked a few times before finally realizing he either needed to pay or run. That one day he decided to fight with a gun. Sucks because like I said Bones always was cool with me and treated me well when our paths crossed. Still miss the guy!!

I went to school with Ray. I never was that close to him, but I also never heard anything bad about him. He definitely never had a reputation as any sort of hood or trouble maker.

Well Ray was my step brother in the laws eyes but he was my brother at heart. He always protected me no matter what, and i loved him for that. It wasn't right what Orlando did to my brother and now justice was served, his mother my step mom is so happy right now looking down from heaven knowing justice was served. God dnt like ugly, as they always say God may nt come when u want him but will always be a ontime God.

I was friends with Ray. We got along great. I was around Stew several times, but he wasn't nice to me to say the least. I said something to him when I heard he hit Libby. We just never got along between him trying to punk me and me saying F-you back to him. Having said that, there's a lot of people I know grieving right now, and I feel for them.

I'm sorry little girl but sound like a complete IDIOT like the others who said justice was served! Your brother was a BULLY! Everyday he was picking , punking or whooping somebody ass! Orlando got tired of his shit and KILLED your "brother". I hate OWENSBORO and every IGNORANT thing about it. If PEOPLE were so concerned with justice being served then why didn't y'all protest for Ray Barnes, huh? Because it was some common thug fucking with a decent respectable person, and that fucked Orlando up for the rest of his life that he was FORCED to put ur brother 6 feet deep. I ASK ALL YOU IDIOTS WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF THE SHOE WAS ON THE OTHER FOOT. what if it was Ray who shot Orlando? Bottom line, you low life crabs in a bucket haters, that bull shit happen 20 fucking years ago....justice is a little swifter than IF HE DESERVED it. Dumb asses.# owensborobegetsidiots. I can't believe you had the nerve to say what u said.

What you said! If you don't know both side of the story, keep your ignorant, one sided arguments to yourself. This was NOT justice
