Lincoln Co. Homeowner Kills Intruder

STROUD, Okla. -- A man was shot and killed as he broke into a Lincoln County woman's home, deputies said.

Billy Dean Riley, 53, of Sparks, was drunk and high on some type of opiate at the time of his death on Friday, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department.

Deputies said Riley crashed a vehicle near the home of Donna Jackson, 57, between 12:30 and 12:50 a.m. Friday. Riley went to the back door of Jackson's home nearby and started to break in.

Jackson told authorities that she picked up a shotgun and called 911.

"There's a man at my back door. He's trying to get in," she said to the dispatcher. "He's close to the door. I'm going to go ahead and get the gun out."

"She told him that she was armed and that she had called the police and that he needed to leave," said Lincoln County Sheriff Chuck Mangion.

In return, deputies said, Riley started screaming vulgarities at the homeowner. He picked up a patio table and threw it through Jackson's glass patio door.

The dispatcher told Jackson that she was advised to defend her property if she needed to.

Jackson said she fired one shot into Riley's chest when he started to enter the home.

"I shot. I shot. I'm going out front. I hit him," she told the dispatcher. "Please, dear God. I think I've killed him. Please father in heaven, please father in heaven."

She cried, expressing concern for Riley and his family.

Riley was pronounced dead by a medical examiner at about 1:50 a.m.

Riley's sister was a passenger in his vehicle, deputies said. Patricia Ellen Totty, 45, was taken to a hospital for drug and alcohol detoxification.

Deputies said Jackson is likely to be covered under Oklahoma's "stand your ground" laws, but the case is still under investigation.Copyright 2009 by koco.com. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed

crazy stuff...I feel bad for the woman, I'm sure she didn't want to kill anybody, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

If she lived in NJ, she'd probably be on trial for murder now. They'd say she should have run out another exit.

This lady is a hero in her own right and I hope she doesn't suffer anymore harm because of this situation.

The best way to avoid any angry liberals trying to arrest you for protecting your home is just to blast the intruder between the legs. Guaranteed to put him down & it's not attempted murder if it's below the waist!:happydancing:
