A Missoula man was charged with deliberate homicide Monday for shooting and killing a high school foreign exchange student in his garage a day earlier, allegedly after setting a trap for burglars and announcing that he was waiting up at night to “shoot some (expletive) kid.”
According to the affidavit filed by Deputy County Attorney Andrew Paul, Kaarma and his common-law wife, Janelle Pflager, set up a surveillance camera and motion sensors - hoping to catch burglars who had allegedly taken phones and credit cards from them in recent weeks.
Pflager told police that she intentionally placed a purse in the garage “so they would take it,” and left the door open 5 1/2 feet. Then she placed a baby monitor in the garage and installed motion sensors outside.
Hopefully they will both spend the rest of their lives in prison.
