Dead end job for bur­glars

Midweek Sport - - BATCHELOR ON THE BOX -

TWO bur­glars got it DEAD WRONG when they tried to rob a house in North Carolina.

The clue­less raiders were shot dead when the own­ers – two US Marines – sud­denly re­turned home.

The sol­diers – who have not been named by US po­lice – con­fronted Mau­rice Skin­ner and Diego Everette, both 33, early on Sun­day.

They at­tacked the Marines be­fore shots were fired.

The pair were both pro­nounced dead at the scene.

The Marines ar­gued that they were act­ing in self-de­fence and are un­likely to face ac­tion.

Po­lice chief Mike Yaniero said: “The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing but at this time there is no ev­i­dence to sug­gest that crim­i­nal charges will be filed.”
