Teens Kill Dog, Rob Home, Pay The Price

Two teenagers thought they found the perfect target for a robbery, little did they know how quickly things would escalate.

On Wednesday, in Louisville, two thugs broke into a home with the intent to rob it. They also decided to kill the family dog. What they didn't know was that the owner was home and armed. They would engage in a gun fight which would lead to the death of one and arrest of the other. The homeowner would not face charges.

Homeowners in the U.S. have the right to defend their homes, the same cannot be said for other countries. Case in point, a break in from Australia that also resulted in the intruders death.

An alleged intruder was subdued and detained by two men at the house he attempted to break into, and subsequently passed away. According to the Huffington Post, the homeowner now finds himself in some serious legal trouble.

The incident took place in Australia and would see 34-year-old Richard Slater allegedly attempt to break into another home. Slater had recently been released from jail after appealing similar charges for an unrelated incident. Two men were at the residence he attempted to break into, and they would subdue and detain him.

Slater would lose consciousness at some point, and police were alerted to a fight on the premises. The alleged intruder would later pass away at a nearby hospital. The homeowner, 33-year-old Benjamin Batterham, was facing initial charges at the time of the incident, but those charges are expected to be upgraded now that Slater has passed away.

The family of Slater attended the initial court proceedings on the incident, and his mother described one of the biggest problems his family is now facing, in addition to their grief over his death.

"They've lost their father, their beautiful father that they haven't seen for years because he was in jail, which has nothing to do with this case," Beryl Dickson explained.
