ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO) – A man accused of killing a Fort Wayne gas station clerk last Thanksgiving was kicked out of court for the second time this year.

21-year-old Victor Rivera is accused of shooting 25-year-old Jacob Walerko with a shotgun, then stealing a pack of cigarettes, on Thanksgiving night last year.

Last month, Rivera was kicked out of the courtroom after he got into an argument with the judge.
