Armed 72-year-Old Woman Stops Intruder from Beating Friend to Death with Baseball Bat

An elderly woman in Pendleton, South Carolina, shot at a man who broke into her home Monday afternoon and was beating her friend with a baseball bat, local media reported.

Last month, Frances Ward, 72, hired Richard Keese, 54, to fix her car last month, but when Keese showed back up at her house on Monday, he had ill intentions.

As Keese forced his way through the front door, Ward’s friend, who does not wish to be identified, grabbed a baseball bat for protection. But once inside the home, Keese simply snatched the bat from the friend and proceeded to beat her with it, throwing her up against a window and breaking the glass in the process.
