[Video] Accomplice of Female Burglar Charged With Murder After She is Killed by Home Owner
Yesterday we brought you the story of an 80 year old California man, Tom Greer, who shot and killed a female burglar outside of his home this week. Prior to the shooting, the pair attacked Greer inside of his home, severely injuring his shoulder and breaking his collarbone.
Greer said in a statement to the media that the woman begged for her life, told him she was pregnant, but he shot her anyway. Greer said he shot the woman in the back twice as she attempted to flee.
Now, it seems the woman’s accomplice in the crime, a male, has been located and arrested. He is being charged with murder for her death. According to ABC News/AP,
The woman’s alleged accomplice was being held for investigation of murder and police said Thursday they had yet to decide whether to recommend any charges be brought against the octogenarian homeowner.
“She says, ‘Don’t shoot me, I’m pregnant — I’m going to have a baby,’ and I shot her anyway,” Greer told KNBC-TV outside his house.
Long Beach police Chief Jim McDonnell said at a news conference Thursday that the woman, 28-year-old Andrea Miller, did not appear to be pregnant, but an autopsy would determine whether she was.
The surviving suspect, Gus Adams, 26, has been arrested on suspicion of residential burglary and murder, McDonnell said. The murder charge is possible because he is accused of being involved in a felony that led to a death, the chief said. He was being held on bail just over $1 million, and police did not know if he had hired an attorney.
Authorities are still determining whether Greer will face any charges in the shooting.
