The Dispatch, Columbus, OH, 6/11/90

Saturday, September 1, 1990

When Peggy Miller answered the door at her Columbus, Ohio, residence, two men inquiring about furniture for sale engaged her in conversation and then abruptly pushed the door open and entered her home. When one man forced Miller onto a couch and began choking her, the 71-year-old drew a revolver she kept for protection and shot him. The second criminal fled, returned minutes later and attempted to reenter the house, only to be put to flight by Miller and her revolver.
