Candy Mitchell of Waterford, California, started losing sleep after
she learned that her ex-boyfriend was released from jail. He had
served only two months of a six-month sentence for physically
abusing her, so it did not seem like a coincidence when, night after
night, she heard strange noises in her back yard and banging on her
bedroom walls. Despite repeated calls to the police, no prowler was
ever found. But the night Mitchell heard someone enter her home, she
grabbed the gun she kept next to her bed and, when she saw a man
heading for her daughter's room, fired several times. Her
ex-boyfriend, John 'Bud' Russell, stumbled outside. When police
arrived, they found Russell dead in his truck. Mitchell later said,
"I could not imagine any reason he'd be in my house but to kill me."
