Followup MI: No Charges for 77-Year-Old who Wounded Intruder
The 77-year-old homeowner is not to be charged because the prosecutor deemed his actions against Irving, allegedly weilding a knife and in search of money, were justified. Citizens have a right to use deadly force when they reasonably believe their lives or the lives of others are in danger, Prosecutor Jerry Jarzynka said.
Irving is charged with armed robbery, first-degree home invasion, carjacking, receiving a stolen firearm, larceny of a firearm, felonious assault and using a firearm to commit a felony, Jarzynka said. He faces up to life in prison if convicted of the most serious offense, armed robbery.
