A man who allegedly admitted to killing a Billings man in 2015 will not be tried.
Yellowstone County prosecutors have chosen not to pursue charges against Nicholas Frandsen because it was determined he acted in self-defense in the shooting death of 42-year-old Shawn Allread.
In a memo, Deputy County attornies Ed Zink and Julie Patten state Frandsen was in his own home where self-defense protections are at their highest.
It also states Allread entered Frandsen's home armed with a firearm.
The investigation also determined Allread's attire and text messages he sent Frandsen show he anticipated a violent confrontation.
