Billings man arraigned on murder charge for road-rage shooting

A Billings man who claims he shot another man to death in self-defense during a road rage incident was arraigned Wednesday in Yellowstone County District Court.

Jacob Dylan Troxel, 31, pleaded not guilty to deliberate homicide (with weapons enhancement) for the shooting death of 29-year-old Michael Duran. Troxel was allowed to remain free on his own recognizance pending the resolution of the case following an agreement between the Yellowstone County Attorney’s Office and Troxel’s public defenders. He was ordered to not possess any firearms and to check in twice a month with authorities.
