CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say a Charlotte woman shot and killed a 29-year-old man who was breaking into her home.

Police say Jonathan Kendrell Boddie was killed at 9:30 a.m. Friday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Boddie and a second suspect forced a man sitting in a car outside the house to go inside, where they started beating him. The woman inside the house told police she pulled out her gun and started shooting.

The man who was beaten did not have life-threatening injuries. Police are still looking for the second man who was with Boddie.

Police say Boddie served more than eight years in prison for armed robbery and for being an accessory after the fact to a second-degree murder. He was currently awaiting trial on drug charges.
