UNION, Mo. (June 25, 2015) — Police are investigating after they say a Franklin County homeowner stabbed and killed someone who he said broke into his home, four months after killing another intruder.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports a man says he woke up and found Eric M. Frazer holding an ax early Tuesday. Authorities say the homeowner told officers that Frazer broke into his home using his ax and threatened him, and that they had an argument.

Police say Frazer left in the homeowner’s vehicle and was later found in the car in a ditch. He was transported to a hospital where he died.

According to Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke, the homeowner shot and killed an intruder in February. He was not charged in the incident.

Toelke said a report of the current case will be handed over to prosecutors for review.
