Followup KY: Accomplice Charged with Murder after Suspect was Shot, Killed by Armed Victim

This appears to be another Felony Murder Rule example.

A woman charged in a home invasion in which a Boaz homeowner shot and killed an intruder has been indicted for murder.

A Graves County grand jury returned the murder indictment against Miranda Murphy on Thursday, Commonwealth Attorney David Hargrove said. Police indicated at a preliminary hearing in November that Murphy was driving the getaway car for her boyfriend, Joshua White, and his father, Timothy Roper, who later died. Investigators said the men broke into the home, assaulted a 79-year-old man and took his wallet.

The grand jury also indicted White and Murphy on two counts of complicity to robbery.
