A 73-year-old St. Louis County, Missouri, man looked up from his
television one night to see an armed man holding 4-inch shears to
his wife's throat. The intruder had broken into the couple's
basement through a window and tied a curtain around his face as a
mask. The man grabbed the homeowner's wife when she came downstairs
and forced her into the living room where he demanded money from her
husband. The homeowner managed to keep his wits about him and told
the bandit that he needed to retrieve his wallet from the bedroom.
He returned instead with a gun and, as his wife pulled away, shot
her captor. The man was able to pull the woman outside with him, but
finally succumbed to his wounds and collapsed.
