The theft of nearly $30,000 worth of reptiles from a Wisconsin home led to a deadly fight this week and ended with two people in jail, including the victim’s own mother.

The owner of the exotic pets, Bill Zelenski, fatally shot an 18-year-old Monday night after accusing him of breaking into his home and stealing the animals, according to a criminal complaint obtained by local news station WLUK-TV.

The suspect and the victim’s mother, Tiffany Powell, confronted the young man and each pointed a gun at him in a shocking altercation that was partly caught on a doorbell camera, authorities said.

The accused killer was charged with first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety and possession of a firearm by a felon. Powell was charged with first-degree intentional homicide as party to a crime.

Zelenski, 44, had initially called the police Monday asking for help in identifying two teenagers who had allegedly broken into his Waupaca home last week.
