Prepare yourself for this one.  Imagine you're at home when a man suddenly comes to your door and kicks it in.  Then he walks through with a machete!  That's what happened to James Cvengros and his girlfriend Kaila Gearhart's  Idaho home.

The 54 year old machete wielding man's name is Thomas Twain and he is now facing up to 15 years in jail.


Mr Cvengros made the decision to grab his gun and his camera when he heard the commotion outside his door.  It was that decision to grab his gun that saved his life.

If he hadn't been shot at that time, then we would be looking at a murder case, not an attempted murder case.


Twain's neuro-psychologist Mark Corgiat found he has suffered from both PTSD and frontal-lobe damage to his brain due to a past car accident.
