APPEARS IN Gun Laws

Rocky Mountain News, Denver, CO ; 7/19/99

Friday, October 1, 1999

A 34-year-old Boulder County, Colorado, woman became the trapped prey in a life-and-death contest with her estranged husband one Saturday when he invaded her home and held her against her will for more than five hours. The woman finally managed to break free by crawling through a second-story window. Then, turning the tables on her tormentor, she re-entered the house this time with a gun and ordered him to leave. The man was later arrested at his home and charged with attempted murder, burglary, felony menacing, harassment by stalking and false imprisonment.
