Marvin Louis Guy (49), pictured below, defended his home against the wrong criminal. Now he could die.
Didn’t Mr. Guy know that when an intruder, who happens to be a police detective, breaks into your home in the wee hours of the morning, you may not repel him? Guy shot Detective Charles Dinwiddie in the face and killed him as Dinwiddie attempted “to serve a search warrant by entering a house through a window.” SWAT was close by.
Prosecutors in Texas are going to seek the death penalty against [Guy]. KWTX offers a dreadfully written summary that says next to nothing about the circumstances of the raid but gives Dinwiddie’s whole life story. Guy faces three additional charges of attempted capital murder for shooting the other officers. The story mentions the no-knock raid but fails to explain why it happened or the failure to find any drugs.
It would appear that agents of the state are supposed to be safe from harm in … your home.
