Murder suspect sues for damages to home during shootout

leave a comment »

A Utah man is suing his insurance company to cover the damage caused in a deadly shootout with police…

Matthew D. Stewart…returned a check worth $3,321.29 from his insurance company, Fire Insurance Exchange and Farmers Insurance Group, to cover a portion of the estimated $8,400 in damages to his Ogden, Utah, home caused during a drug raid, The Salt Lake Tribune said…

Stewart is charged with aggravated murder for allegedly shooting Webster Morgan Strike Force Agent Jared Francom Jan. 4, 2012. Francom was one of several agents to raid Stewart’s home on suspicion of a marijuana-growing operation inside…Stewart allegedly began firing at officers, striking and killing Francom. Stewart has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.

Though Stewart’s lawyer said his client is entitled to the full amount of damages to his home, the insurance company said in a letter it is not liable for “intentional damage” done to the property.

Found guilty of a capital offense in Utah, you have the option of death by firing squad. Phew!
