LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested a woman for breaking into a Lynnview home one day after a man was killed there. 27-year-old Tazra L. Litsey faces charges of burglary and possession of burglary tools.
On Monday, police say 35-year-old Holly Pitts beat a man to death with a baseball bat at her home in the 4900 block of Preston Highway, near Gilmore Lane. She was charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence and appeared before a judge for arraignment Tuesday morning.
But police say another, unrelated crime took place at the scene yesterday. According to an arrest report, a neighbor spotted Litsey breaking into Pitts' home late Tuesday night. Police say the neighbor saw her inside the home, unscrewing light bulbs so the scene would be dark.
Officers showed up a few minutes later, and allegedly found Litsey inside the home holding a personal computer. When she saw the officers' flashlights, she allegedly tried to run out the back door. Police say they eventually caught her as she attempted to scale a nearby fence.
"When searched, the subject had a large screwdriver in her possession," police said. "The back door of [the] home appeared to be pried open by a prying tool."
"This location was the scene of a homicide on the previous date and was now unoccupied because of that incident," police added.
