Brothers indicted on new charges in Oakwood home invasion

— Two brothers accused of breaking into a Raleigh couple's home, sexually assaulting a woman and shooting her husband earlier this month were indicted Monday on additional charges in the case. 

Shabar Master Marshall, 16, and Jahaad Tariem Allah Marshall, 26, each face 10 counts, including new charges of attempted first-degree sex offense, robbery with a dangerous weapon and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. 

The grand jury also indicted Shabar Marshall on an additional count of attempted first-degree rape and Jahaad Marshall on first-degree sex offense.

The pair was arrested following a high-speed chase on Jan. 7, hours after investigators say they attacked the couple in their home in the 500 block of East Lane Street in Raleigh's historic Oakwood district.  

The female victim, whom WRAL News is not identifying, told a 911 dispatcher that she and her husband woke up in the middle of the night to find two men standing over their bed. The men demanded money, took her from the bedroom and assaulted her.

She managed to escape and run to a neighbor's house, where she called 911. Once outside, she heard her husband get shot, she told the dispatcher.

The gunshot wound to his spine left him paralyzed.

    Would 3 strikes not apply for the older brother due to his priors and current charges? I am older now and my memory doesn't serve me as well as it used to....but...I seem to recall in NC 20-30 years ago that the penalty for a home invasion carried a long sentence of jail time. We need to get tougher sentences on any crime with a victim of any sort. I feel that if you commit any violent crime against another human being then you have now forfeited your ability and right to live among the rest of society. Laws must be changed and have much stiffer penalties when the crime involves any victim, period.

    I'm willing to pay for all the labor and lumber needed to construct some gallows in central Raleigh.

    "They awoke to find the perps already standing over them likely with guns trained on them. Why is gun control even an issue here?????" - Cat22

    Remember that the wife actually got away and had to run to another house to call the police. I've got a couple or so firearms strategically placed in my house. If I get away, I'm not running to a neighbor but rather my closest firearm.

    These two make me support state sponsored torture.

    One will get 20 to 30, the other will be out by time he's 18. We really need to do an overhaul of the crimminal system. But we also need to be ready to pay for it.

    The more I see clips on this story, the madder I get. I've got a big dog, and a big gun, and I still worry about home invasion, and I live in a safe neighborhood.

    Any reason why these two should ever see daylight again? I think they forfeited that right!

    And this is why I have 2 German Shepherds and several guns! get past one that wakes me up, I promise you will not get past the second. Heavenly

    I have three large dogs and guns as well. If those poor folks had a chihuahua and a gun we would have a different outcome and maybe some savings for the taxpayers.
