ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - Two men accused of home invasion are also
booked with second-degree murder because the home's resident shot
and killed their alleged accomplice.
Alexandria police said that 19-year-old Marlon
Chaney and 20-year-old Warren O'Connor face the charge because they
were attempting armed robbery when 24-year-old Darwin Johnson was
killed early Monday.
Resident Roy Harris Jr., also shot O'Conner, who was booked
after hospital treatment.
Police say the three allegedly broke in while Harris, his wife
and children slept.
The Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office has not yet released the
name of a man shot during another alleged home invasion Monday.
Investigators say both residents were within rights under
Louisiana's justifiable homicide law.
