Perry Tatsch and his wife were sleeping when a man drove his truck
through a gate on their property and kicked in the front door
around 2 a.m. The intruder, later identified as Steven Ray Foster,
then assaulted Mr. Tatsch. Coming to her husband's aid, Tatsch's
wife managed to push Foster into the kitchen. When Tatsch then ran
into his bathroom, Foster followed him and continued beating him.
Tatsch's wife intervened a second time, giving Tatsch enough time
to secure a handgun. Tatsch then ordered Foster to leave. The two
men struggled and Tatsch shot Foster in the chest, killing him. The
Tatsches had separated for a while and Foster reportedly had been
interested in dating Mrs. Tatsch, who told authorities she did not
share Foster's interest.
