    This article is incomplete at best and leaves the reader wondering if the intruders knew the victim. Or was this just a routine home invasion? Was anything stolen other than the kitchen knives? Maybe a follow up article?

    WOW!! Don't you think that bond is too high. That's the problem with the justice system today, slap on the hand is about all the punishment criminals get!
