EDGAR COUNTY -- A teen convicted of murder is out of jail. Terry Payton was found guilty of second degree murder in the death of his mother.

In March, his attorney asked for a new trial. Payton's bond was set at $100,000. He paid that Wednesday.

His defense says he was abused by his mother. They're arguing the murder in self-defense. Payton's due back in court Friday.
