Castle Rock, Colo. (AP) A Douglas County man who shot and killed an intruder in his home won't be prosecuted.

Deputies and prosecutors who investigated the case determined William Fresch, 65, “acted in accordance with Colorado law in protecting himself, inside his home,” according to a statement from the Douglas County Sheriff's office.

Killed was Joseph D. Boone, 42, whose last known address was in the parker area.

Colorado's so-called “make my day” law passed in 1985 allows people to use deadly force in self-defense in their homes.
