A second arrest has been made in the case of an armed teen who was defending his home.

Court records reveal that a second suspect involved in the home burglary attempt was found already in jail on an unrelated charge.

On January 27, a mother called her son and told him that an acquaintance may try to rob them.

The 13-year-old boy heard a noise at the door. He looked through the peep-hole and saw a man and a woman trying to get in.

The man, now identified as 34-year-old Cody Quentin Headrick, successfully kicked down the door.

Police report that the boy ran and grabbed a gun, pointed it at the two suspects and told them to get out.

The couple ran away. The boy and another neighbor picked Headrick out of a photo lineup. The neighbor went to check on the boy and saw Headrick running out of the home.

On March 3, police located the woman, Elizabeth Anne Quigley, at a home near 67th Avenue and Van Buren Street. Headrick was also there but ran away as Quigley was being detained.

Quigley did not say much to police, according to records, except for, "I was there." She faces one count of burglary.

On June 29, Headrick was discovered to be in jail already on other charges. He admitted to being there, but denied kicking in the door.

He did reportedly tell investigators that "if the boy had not been there with a gun they probably would have taken the victim's property."

Headrick will now faces a charge of conspiracy to commit burglary.
