(London Telegraph) An 80-year-old California man has admitted shooting to death a fleeing female intruder even though she begged for her life and said she was pregnant.
Tom Greer told Los Angeles television station KNBC that he shot Andrea Miller, 28, striking her twice in the back just outside his house as she was running away.
Mr Greer said: "She says, 'Don't shoot me, I'm pregnant, I'm going to have a baby,' and I shot her anyway."
