Billings — A 31-year-old man was charged with breaking into two Billings homes, including one where his last name was written on the wall
in his own blood.
The Billings Gazette
reports Timothy Robert Sloe appeared in Yellowstone County
Justice Court on Wednesday. He remained jailed on Thursday with his bail set at $5 000. Prosecutors say a couple left their home for about 90 minutes on January 2. When they returned, they found the doors open, a broken window, the name “Sloe” on the wall in blood and a shotgun that was not theirs. Police learned the shotgun was taken from a nearby residence. Officers arrested Sloe when a third homeowner called to report a man was banging on their door. Court records say a DNA test determined blood at
the first home matched Sloe.
