Dustin Stewart

A good law, Ctd

The other day I blogged about Sarah McKinley who shot and killed an intruder at her home. In an interesting twist the accomplice of the dead attacker is now being charged with his murder.

The¬†young Oklahoma mother who shot and killed an intruder¬†to protect her 3-month-old son on New Year’s Eve will not face criminal charges.

Prosecutors have instead charged the intruder’s alleged accomplice, 29-year-old Dustin Stewart, with first-degree murder in the death of his friend, Justin Shane Martin, 24.

Police said the two men broke into 18-year-old Sarah McKinley’s mobile home in Blanchard, Okla., the evening of Dec. 31, while the young widow was home with her baby. McKinley’s husband had died the week before, on Christmas Day, of lung cancer.
