The step son of Cedar Hill, TX mayor Rob Franke, was shot and killed by a homeowner when he attempted to burglarize the home on Christmas Eve.

The suspect, identified as 31-year-old Joshua Slaven.

Slaven tried to enter the home through a bedroom window.

The homeowner armed himself and opened fire, hitting and killing Slaven.

According to ValleyCentral.com,

Chris Knox, an attorney for the homeowner, told The Dallas Morning News the intruder entered the Cedar Hill home through a bedroom window just before midnight Tuesday. Knox says the homeowner’s deadly actions were justified and “completely protected under Texas law.”

Slaven had been arrested over an incident at his home less than a month ago.

Texas continues to lead all other states for the highest number of documented defensive gun uses.
