File This Under: Be Careful What House You Break Into

JusticeLife sentence – plus 140 years – in break-in that led to shootout with homeowner This guy picked the wrong house.
Richardson, along with 26-year-old Stephen L. Norwood, broke into the Elsmere-area home of Thomas Morganstern in November 2005.

Police said the men started shooting at 61-year-old Morganstern, an avid hunter, but missed him. Morganstern shot back, injuring Richardson and killing Norwood.
He was convicted of attempted murder and other charges.

So his partner was killed, he was wounded and ended up with 140 years plus life. (I'm never sure what these sentences mean - longer than life in prison. Do they keep them in the freezer for those extra years?)
