Texas Fiancée, 65, Shoots & Kills 19-Year-Old Home Intruder


Last week, a 65-year-old woman saved her fiancée’s life when she shot and killed an intruder in their rural Texas home.

After midnight last Saturday morning, Curtis Roys awoke to a loud banging on the back porch. His home is located outside of Fredericksburg, Texas, in Gilespie County. Fredericksburg is about 80 miles north of San Antonio.

The 73-year-old Roys went to investigate and was confronted by a young man who pushed Roys into the house through the patio and began beating him with a blunt object. The intruder then got Roys into a chokehold, the Gilespie County Sheriff’s Office reported.

About this time, Roys’s fiancée, Melody Lumpkin, came to check on her husband-to-be. She shouted for the intruder to let Roys go but he didn’t respond.
