A Shiner man who is accused of killing a man he caught molesting his 4-year-old is getting support from the community in the South Texas town known for its beer.
The father hit the man several times in the head, killing him, according to the Lavaca County Sheriff’s Department.
Residents in Shiner said they support the father and hope he is not charged with the homicide.
"He got what he deserved, big time," said Sonny Jaehne, a Shiner native, of the man who was killed.
"I was shocked. I didn't like what the father did, but if I saw it happen I would have probably done the same thing," said Marlene Jacks of Shiner. "I think the father was justified."
