Cape woman shoots, kills rapist in her home
Saturday, November 1, 2008
Before shooting and killing her rapist early Friday morning, a Cape Girardeau woman had never fired a shotgun in her life.
Though the woman, whose name has been withheld, lived alone, she’d always felt safe in her neighborhood, where she’d lived for the past four years.
When Ronnie W. Preyer, a registered sex offender who was about to be charged with assaulting her a week earlier, broke into her home shortly after 2 a.m. Friday, she said a calm settled over her as she shot him in the chest before running to a neighbor’s to get help.
Until next time…
