Alleged thief killed by falling window

SAO PAULO, Brazil Inspector Fernanda Rangel says it appears the intruder was trapped for at least four days after the window's iron frame fell on his neck, choking him to death.

The alleged robber has not been identified. Rangel says he appeared to be about 30 years old.

His body was discovered Tuesday by the house's owner, who had arrived to store some personal belongings there.
