spying from a greenskeeper at her local golf course for more than
six months. In a final invasion of his victim's privacy, the
stalker, armed with a handgun and a rope, found his way into the
woman's home. After ordering her husband out of the way, the man
confronted the woman, pushing her into a back bedroom and letting
loose a volley of five shots. The wounded victim was not about to go
easily, however, and fired back with one shot with a .38-cal.
revolver she had bought for protection. The shot proved fatal to the
50-year-old man whose body was found next to a backpack full of
pornography. The stalker was also under indictment for five counts
of lewd and lascivious assault on a child.
