BRADENTON, Fl. — Larry Boyers knew there was a deputy sheriff in his carport when he fired twice through a screen door in a brazen attempt to kill the officer, prosecutors told jurors.

Boyers, whose son is a Manatee County deputy sheriff, said he was in the throes of an emotional breakdown and was insane at the time of the shooting in January 2007. He had been drinking heavily that night.
