Burglar held at gunpoint by homeowner sentenced

A Parker County jury convicted a 28-year-old Weatherford man of burglary of a habitation and sentenced him to the maximum sentence of 20 years in prison Tuesday.

Christopher Dean Morris was convicted of burglarizing a home just south of the Weatherford city limits on December 28. The homeowner arrived while Morris was in his home and the homeowner and a neighbor held Morris at gunpoint with an AR-15 rifle until deputies arrived.

Morris later said he was high on methamphetamine at the time.

Morris had 13 prior convictions.
