A few minutes later, Smith again heard footsteps above him -- and just as Brady had done, Kifer came down the stairs and was shot by Smith, sending her tumbling down the stairs.

This is the part of the story that I have a hard time with.

The house is not that big and surely the girl would have heard the shots in the basement.

Why didn't she run as fast and as far as her little feet could carry her out of the house???

Why would she go down into the basement where the shots came from???

Something about this doesn't sound right.

He may have caught them breaking into his house upstairs and then brought them downstairs and executed them. He's that crazy.

Or it may have been a drug deal gone bad. Or she might have been desperate for a fix. Or she might have thought her boyfriend did the shooting. Or she might have been so high she didn’t know what was happening.

I think you are close to the truth, We’ll never really know.

There is a scenario which makes a lot of sense.

What if she believed that Brady had shot Smith and she came downstairs to see the corpse & discuss where & how to loot the rest of the house? Her coming down the stairs makes a lot of sense if that is what she thought.

My take on the whole thing is that killing the first one was justified. Smith knows he has multiple intruders and can't take a chance on leaving anyone alive behind him. Remember it is Smith's house and he is under attack at that point. Shooting the girl as many times as he wants, from a distance, is justifiable also. Even getting out the pistol after his rifle jams is OK.

The only thing not OK is the "finishing shot" .
