Atascadero man arrested for murdering neighbor
May 25, 2013
Mark Alan Andrews, 49, is under arrest for allegedly shooting Colleen Barga-Milbury at close range near the front door of her residence. There is no indication of a sexual assault.
A tip from an anonymous citizen led police to Andrews, who suffers from a mental illness. He is being held without bail.
Detectives detained Andrews and then served a search warrant on his home. Officers found a rifle consistent with the type of weapon believed to be the murder weapon and a live hand grenade during their search.
“There is no evidence to indicate that the victim had a conflict with the suspect prior to the homicide,” police said in a press release.
