Awakened by a crashing sound, Eula Luffman discovered a man
had shattered a door of her Danville, Va., home and was stalking
through the house. She retrieved a handgun from the bedroom and
confronted the man in the living room. Luffman, 69, warned him to
stop but he continued to approach, and when he reached out for her,
she shot him. Police linked the dead man to the rapes of several
elderly women in the area.
