New York man accused of murder after suspected burglar dies

Most people likely have no idea how they would react if they were faced with a home intruder. However, the urge to protect self and property is likely an understandable one. Despite this, a man in New York faces a murder charge after an alleged confrontation with a man that reports indicate may have been trying to rob his home.

According to reports, the incident happened during the late night hours of a day in September. The wife of the man now charged reports that she and her husband were in bed when she heard someone on their property, "prowling around." She says that she went downstairs and saw someone in her backyard; she ordered the person to leave, then called the police.

At that time, she says her husband came downstairs and confronted the man before the latter fled. Her husband, she claims, chased the man up the block. The husband is accused of striking the man in the head with a metal pipe; he died after being transported to the hospital. The woman's husband is now charged with murder. She claims that there is an art collection in the home that is worth several million dollars.

Unfortunately, a New York homeowner now faces serious charges after a confrontation with someone he appeared to believe was attempting to rob his home. To ensure that he fully understands the murder accusations he is facing and his potential options to respond to them, he may choose to seek guidance from an experienced criminal defense attorney. Such a professional can guide him through the decisions that will likely have a significant impact on the rest of his life.
