this self confessed part (if accurate) shows that this is beyond self defense and protection
I am for shooting in self defense, but after that its just murder.

Smith told police he armed himself with a rifle and a handgun and waited downstairs until he saw the first person's feet, then legs, then hips.
He said he fired and the first victim, Brady, tumbled down the stairs. While Brady looked up at him, he shot him in the face, according to the complaint.

I can understand protecting your stuff with force, however, killing in any fashion is going to far. (unless of course you shot them in the leg or arm and they died of complications or something however, intentionally killing them is going too far.
If he knew people had broken into his house, why didn't he call the police first, or at least threaten the teens that he'll shoot if they didn't get out? Why would you hide in wait, especially if you didn't know whether the kids were armed? It just seems like the two teenagers got the full brunt of his frustration of having his place broken into and paid for it with their lives. But to shoot them afterwards even more, that's just sick and demented. Is it really self-defense if the other party doesn't have any weapons and you just shoot them? To me, self-defense is when you feel you're physically threatened with violence, and so you have to retaliate. He didn't do this; it's like he just decided the next two people who broke into his house were going to be executed. What a psychotic nut.
