Charles Bonura was informed by his wife that an unidentified
man had entered the Kenner, La., home of his 76-year-old mother next
door. Bonura got his revolver and went to investigate. He found a
thug attempting to strangle his mother. When the assailant tried to
flee, Bonur felled him with one shot. It was later learned that the
seriously wounded bandit was wanted by police in connection with a
series of crimes.
