Apparently this wasn’t the victim’s first run-in with the suspects and in addition to his 18-year-old accomplice being shot, a 15-year-old suspect was arrested for aggravated assault stemming from a previous incident.
Those boots may have been made for walking, but not on the feet of the mailman who just broke into a woman’s house.
The man apparently found a cozy spot, complete with an electrical outlet where he could charge his cell phones, and just hung out unnoticed for three days.
The suspect went to a bedroom with the homeowner after putting a knife to her friend’s throat, but the suspect was unaware the friend had a handgun nearby.
While en route to the hospital to get help for the reaction to the drug, he jumped out of the ambulance and tried to break into a home before getting shot.
The suspect was armed with a handgun, wearing a hat and had his face covered with a bandanna when he crashed through the door, but he was met by the armed homeowner who was ready to protect his wife and two children.
Piscataquis County Sheriff John Goggins said after Stephanie Ginn Gebo fired at Robert Burton as he broke into her house, he “just lost it” before he tussled with her, took the gun and killed her.
One suspect was killed and the other critically injured after they forced their way into the house in broad daylight, threatened the young boy and attacked his mother.
While it’s unknown if the man was armed, court records indicate that the former couple had a history or domestic violence, alleged assaults and threats, and at one point a protective order was taken out against the intruder.
As the suspect lay in the front yard writhing about, the homeowner’s wife apparently walked over to him, ripped off his mask and told him she would kick him if he moved.
