Montana Man Charged With Homicide In Teen Shooting

Posted: Updated:

 Prosecutors say a 29-year-old Montana man who is charged with deliberate homicide in the shooting of a 17-year-old boy in his garage had set a trap to catch any would-be burglars after being victimized several times.

Markus Kaarma, of Missoula, made an initial appearance in Justice Court on Monday for the felony charge filed after the death of Diren Dede of Hamburg, Germany.

Court records say Kaarma and his wife, Janelle Pflager, had set up sensors outside the garage and a video monitoring system in the garage, and had left the garage door open with a purse inside.

Early Sunday, the sensors went off and they looked at the video and saw someone in the garage.

Prosecutors say Kaarma went outside and fired four shots into the darkened garage, hitting Dede in the head and arm.
