OK OUJI-CR 8-14.  DEFENSE OF PROPERTY – JUSTIFIABLE USE OF DEADLY FORCE IN DEFENSE OF HABITATION

A person is justified in using deadly force when resisting any attempt by another to commit a felony upon or in any dwelling house in which that person is lawfully present. Defense of habitation is a defense although the danger that a felony would be committed upon or in the dwelling house may not have been real, if a reasonable person, in the circumstances and from the viewpoint of the defendant, would reasonably have believed that there was an imminent danger that such felony would occur.
