One home invader is dead and his three accomplices are being charged with his murder after a homeowner in Alabama defended herself against the group.
According to local media reports:
[Police] said the foursome went to the home of the victim, located in the 100 block of Plainview Drive, earlier in the day on Monday asking to use her phone. She refused to let them inside.
They returned around 9:30 p.m. that night and forced their way in, Chaffin said.
The homeowner, who was alone when they broke in, pulled out a gun and started firing.
[Richard William Taylor] died of multiple gunshot wounds, said Madison County Coroner Bobby Berryhill.
The three surviving suspects, identified as Jeremy Floyd Jones, 29; Audra Lynn Anderson Ikard, 42; and Brandi Michelle Seagroves, 26, are all charged with Taylor’s murder as they were involved with a crime that resulted in a homicide, even though none of them pulled the trigger.
The homeowner was acting in self defense and is not expected to face any charges in the incident.
This is the 39th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Alabama and the 1,398th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
