Jerry and Mary Lou Krause had established a plan to protect
themselves in case anyone ever tried to invade their Swanton
Township, Ohio, home. As it turned out, they desperately needed that
plan one evening when two men came to the door asking for
directions. As Jerry Krause stood inside talking with the first
man, Mary Lou Krause followed the plan and fetched her .22-cal.
handgun from the bedroom. When she returned, a second man--this one
armed with a gun--was helping the first man force his way inside.
In the exchange of gunfire that followed, Mary Lou Krause was grazed
and the two intruders were sent hightailing into the night. "...She
was absolutely correct in defending herself," said Lucus County
Sheriff Jim Talb.
