SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) - No charges will be filed against a Pottawatomie County man who shot and killed a would-be intruder.
Prosecutors say Thomas Lillard was justified under the state's "Make My Day" law to shoot 32-year-old Isaiah Reuben Poncho on March 4.
District Attorney Richard Smothermon says Poncho was trying to force his way into Lillard's home near Shawnee and assaulted him before Lillard shot him.
While Lillard was cleared in the shooting he still faces felony charges for what investigators say appeared to be a drug-dealing operation in his home.
Authorities say marijuana, drug paraphernalia, guns and about $6,700 in cash were found in his home.
