(CBS) BLANCHARD, Okla. - The man who survived an attempted New Year's Eve break-in at the home of teen mom Sarah McKinley was released on bond Thursday.
According to CBS affiliate KWTV, Dustin Stewart, 29, has been charged with murder for his role in the botched break-in which resulted in McKinley shooting and killing his alleged accomplice, Justin Martin, 24.
Stewart and his family declined to talk to local reporters, but a local resident told the station that he thinks it's "unfortunate" that a man who didn't pull the trigger is charged with murder.
"[The charge] seems a little serious ... but that's the rule," Blanchard resident Dean Oxley said. "You got to play by the game."
McKinley, who was on the phone with a 911 operator while the two men allegedly tried to break into the home she shared with her three-month old son, said the news of Stewart's release made her nervous. She said she carries a gun now and is "ready, waiting and watching."
McKinley shot and killed Martin when he broke through her front door.
"They made a decision to break into my house, and I made a decision that was right for me," McKinley said.
