AZ- Slain man had violated court order, police say

9-30-2008 Arizona:

A woman shot and killed a man when he disregarded a protective order, broke into her home and cornered her in a bedroom, police said Monday.

There were "prior incidents of violence" between the man and the unidentified 49-year-old woman, an investigator said.

Terry Dean Milburn died at the woman's house near 39th and Voltaire avenues at 2 a.m. Sunday. The woman was not injured.

Milburn, 45, a registered Class 3 sex offender, was released in 2006 from the Arizona Department of Corrections after serving more than one year of a three-year sentence for kidnapping a woman at knifepoint before sexually assaulting her.

He is listed in the Arizona Department of Public Safety's sex-offender database as a transient who lives at 15th Avenue and Encanto Boulevard.

The woman called 911 after Milburn arrived at her home to report a violation of a protective order.

"While on the phone with the 911 operator, (Milburn) forced his way into her house by breaking a window," Phoenix police Detective Cindy Scott said in an e-mail.

"Fearing for her safety, the victim retreated to her bedroom. The suspect followed her to this room and she fatally shot him."

Phoenix Police forwarded the case to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office for review after declining to recommend criminal charges against the woman, Scott said. ..News Source.. by Michael Ferraresi
