Defend yourself at your own risk in the UK
A shopkeeper could face a murder charge following a fatal struggle with a knife-wielding raider.
Tony Singh fought back when Liam Kilroe, a career criminal, ambushed him in his car after closing time.
Kilroe, who was trying to steal Mr Singh's takings, staggered away with a stab wound from his own knife and died in a pool of blood.
The 25-year-old was on the run after being charged with two robberies.
Police called to the scene found Mr Singh in a state of shock, still sitting in his car and nursing serious knife wounds to his back, face and neck.
However, the officers arrested the 34-year-old and are preparing to send a file to the Crown Prosecution Service.
A murder charge would carry a life sentence on conviction.
The case resembles that of Tony Martin who was charged with murder after shooting Fred Barras, 16, during a raid on his Norfolk farm in 1999.
He was convicted of manslaughter and served three years in prison. . . .
