The day after he was released from prison, where he served time for
domestic battery against Charolette Gates, Christopher Winder broke
into Gates' home. A fight broke out, and Gates reached for a handgun
to defend herself. Gates shot Winder once in the chest. Police
discovered Winder collapsed in a neighbor's back yard, and he was
later pronounced dead at the scene. No charges were expected to be
filed against Gates, according to Peoria County State's Attorney
Kevin Lyons. "Your home is your sanctuary, and if an intruder breaks
in and gets killed, then too bad for the intruder," Lyons said. "I
am not going to victimize her yet again because a recently released
felon decided to invade the quiet world of her home."
