BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) _ Police and the lawyer for a Vermont homeowner who fatally stabbed an intruder indicate he is not expected to be charged with a crime.

Shawn Garrett woke up early June 1 to find a man in his Essex Junction home. Ryan Morton-Lane of Storrs, Conn., was killed after a fight.

Chittenden County State’s Attorney T.J. Donovan scheduled a news conference for Tuesday afternoon to announce his decision about whether the 40-year-old Garrett would be charged.

The Burlington Free Press reports when asked if police had issued Garrett a citation ordering him into court, Essex Police Chief Brad LaRose said Garrett has not been charged, and the details would be explained Tuesday. Garrett’s lawyer, Kurt Hughes, said his client “had a relatively peaceful weekend.”
