    The daytime birthday party for the Danahers' daughter turned into a loud nighttime karaoke party. After calling police multiple times to complain about the noise, Rodriguez confronted his neighbors, capturing it on a 22-minute video. Feeling threatened by the men at the party, he later said, he pulled a gun on Kelly Danaher, seen here.

    Rodriguez was on the phone with police dispatch and told them, "I have to defend myself." But Harris County police told ABC News "20/20" that none of the men from the party had weapons.

    Rodriguez repeatedly fired his pistol after one of Danaher's friends approached him. He cited Texas' Stand Your Ground law in his defense. Prosecutors told "20/20" it didn't apply, because Rodriguez himself provoked the argument. Nine neighbors testified about Rodriguez's frequent complaints and his habit of not concealing his handgun. Rodriguez is serving a 40-year sentence for murder.
