Cass County man no-billed in alleged burglar’s shooting death
By: Lynn LaRowe - Texarkana Gazette - Published: 08/24/2008
A homeowner who shot and killed a man he found burglarizing his home on June 4 was no-billed by the Cass County grand jury last week.
“I certainly support the grand jury’s decision,” said Cass County District Attorney Clint Allen. “I believe the grand jury made the right decision based on Texas law governing the use of deadly force.”
The burglar was identified as Brian Eugene Moore. In Miller County he was facing 34 counts of prescription drug forgery using the name Brian Fife.
The names Brian Fife and his wife, Emily Fife, both appeared on a Miller County Circuit Court docket the day after the shooting. The Miller County Circuit judge presiding over the case issued a warrant for Emily Fife’s arrest for failing to appear in court.
When a homeowner living in the Antioch community on Farm to Market Road 2791 discovered the crime in progress on the afternoon of June 4, he held Moore and his wife at gunpoint while he waited for law enforcement to respond to a 911 call, Cass County Sheriff Troop Estes told the Gazette in previous reports.
Moore struggled with the homeowner before deputies could arrive and was fatally shot. Emily Fife fled but was later caught. She was indicted last week for burglary of a habitation by the same grand jury that no-billed the homeowner.
She is currently being held in the Cass County jail. However, she soon may be brought before a judge in Miller County. She faces 47 counts of prescription forgery there. She allegedly used stolen prescription pads to fraudulently obtain methodone.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Too bad they didn't indict her for the "felony murder" of her scumbag husband!
Still all ended well in the homeowners case! Gotta give kudo's for that!
And all ended well for the dead burglar... He won't have to be breaking into any more homes to support his drug habit.
Kind of a "cold turkey" way to fight addiction!

Good to see the DA saw it that way.
