The burglar ransacked 81-year-old Alberta Nicles' Muskegon,
Michigan, home before waking her up and ordering her around the
house to search for money. Ending up back in her bedroom, the
intruder--a suspected crack addict with a long history of criminal
activity--removed the widow's pajama bottoms and was preparing to
rape her when she informed him that she knew where there was some
money. Her assailant let her up and followed her to a closet where
the woman instead retrieved her late husband's .38. She turned and
shot her tormentor to death. Nicles then went to a neighbor's home
to call police because her own lines had been severed by the
intruder prior to his breaking in. "This was not just a random
breaking and entering. ...He was planning on taking advantage of the
vulnerability of an elderly person. ...She was clearly acting in
self-defense," Muskegon County Prosecutor Tony Tague said.
