BILLINGS, Mont. – A 31-year-old man is charged with breaking into two Billings homes, including the one where his last name was written on the wall in his own blood.
The Billings Gazette reports (bit.ly/2hAdiVN) Timothy Robert Sloe appeared in Yellowstone County Justice Court on Wednesday. He remained jailed Thursday with bail set at $5,000.
Prosecutors say a couple left their house for about 90 minutes on Jan. 2. When they returned, they found the doors open, a broken window, the name of “Sloe” on the wall in blood, and a shotgun that was not theirs.
The police learned that the shotgun is coming from a nearby house.
Officers arrested Sloe as a third owner called to report that a man was banging on the door.
Court records say a DNA test of blood at the first house tailored Sloe.
