(Scroll down for video) An elderly man walked free despite killing a woman who begged for her life, saying that she was pregnant.
Prosecutors have declined to charge the 80-year-old man of California, for the murder of a thief who claimed to be pregnant.
Tom Greer, a homeowner in Long Beach, walked into his home to find Gus Adams and Andrea Miller burglarizing his home.
Greer said that the couple jumped him, pushed him to the ground and broke his collarbone. However, they were unarmed and allowed the man to watch as they tried to open his safe.
The male suspect demanded to know where Greer kept his tools so he can pry open the safe. Greer, who had about $15,000 cash in the safe, told the man to go downstairs to the basement where he kept all his tools.
The suspect went downstairs while his female partner in crime waited upstairs. Meanwhile, Greer slipped away and grabbed his gun.
When the couple saw the gun they ran out of the home. Greer ran after them and shot the woman. The man got away so he shot the woman a second time.
Greer said that the woman pleaded for her life and asked him not to shoot her because she was pregnant, but he killed her anyway.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said that Greer will not be charged in the shooting because the woman broke into his home.
The autopsy showed that Miller was not pregnant.
Adams has been charged with the murder of Miller, because he committed a felony that led to her death. Adams was also charged with burglary and robbery.
