State releases more Michael Dunn jail letters

First Coast News has obtained more letters written by Michael Dunn from jail. The letters were released by the State's Attorney's Office to FCN on Wednesday. The letters include two letters to his daughter Rebecca and and show how involved Dunn was in his own defense. There is also a letter from his fiance Rhonda Rouer.

Dunn is charged with first degree murder for the shooting death of Jordan Davis, 17, in November 2012 at a gas station on the city's south side. In February, a jury of 12 failed to reach a verdict on first degree murder after multiple days of deliberations.

They did, however, find Dunn guilty on multiple counts of attempted murder charges for three of Davis' friends who were also inside the SUV.
