AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say an Ohio homeowner who fatally shot a man he caught breaking into his house has been charged with voluntary manslaughter.

Twenty-one-year-old Akron resident David Hillis surrendered to police there Monday in the Aug. 7 killing of 25-year-old Marcus Glover.

Police say Glover and 37-year-old Terry Tart broke into Hillis’ home and then fled when Hillis produced a handgun. Police say Hillis fired the fatal shot as he chased the pair.

Hillis told police he killed Glover in self-defense. He is free after posting bond Monday.

Prosecutors say Tart is charged with aggravated burglary for the break-in and murder for having helped cause Glover’s death.

Tart is in Summit County jail. No attorney information was available for him.
