    “Missouri law is pretty clear that the homeowner was acting well within her rights, at least as I read the incident,” Merrell said.




    ^^^^^^That sounds like a pretty level-headed prosecuting Attorney^^^^^

    Very lucky homeowner,if the perp can run from the scene,there is a good chance they could of shot back,either he had a toy gun,or didn't want a murder charge since having her bullet in him is pretty hard to refute in court

    Good for her. The only way it could have been better is if we were referring to the LATE criminal, instead of the injured one.

    I am afraid that in the days to come (actually months and possibility years) this kind of criminal activity will become more common place. This kind of action by the home owner is the only way to deal with it.

    Hell yeah, It's called Castle Doctrine Mr. Prosecutor... No need to use the phrase "did not expect."

    The scumbag was armed with a gun, and in her house! Homeowner is protected by law. To quote yourself...
    "Missouri Law Is Pretty Clear"

    How about just saying "No charges will be filed," and leave it at that.

    Mrs. Melton did an excellent job keeping her cool and hitting him in the chest while being threatened with the scumbag's gun.

    Very pleased to see the victim won and was not hurt. Way to make self defense look good!
