Honest Austin reports: Law enforcement have arrested a 43-year-old woman in Hays County and are seeking another 20-year old suspect in connection with a burglary in which one of the intruders was shot and killed by the homeowner.

During the home invasion, Joseph Mathews was shot by the homeowner. The homeowner’s girlfriend called 9-1-1 and EMS took the would-be burglar to a hospital with life-threatening injuries from multiple gunshot wounds.

Mathews died September 22 at a hospice house in North Carolina, five months after the incident in Austin on the night of April 26.

At that point, APD sought capital murder warrants against the two surviving robbers under a provision of the Texas Penal Code known as the felony murder rule. The rule states that a person commits murder if he “commits or attempts to commit a felony, other than manslaughter, and in the course of and in furtherance of the commission or attempt, or in immediate flight from the commission or attempt, he commits or attempts to commit an act clearly dangerous to human life that causes the death of an individual.”
