Mills spoke with police about the incident. She said she and Jouravleff were sleeping on the second floor when they heard a knock at the door about 1 a.m., according to court documents.
Mills said that while her husband went downstairs to answer the door, she looked out the bedroom window and saw someone by the bushes near her front door. Mills told police she heard him open the door, but she didn't hear anyone talking. She then heard a pop, which she said sounded like a cap gun, and heard her husband moaning and yelling for help, according to court documents.
Mills called 911 from her bedroom. A man came into the room and disconnected her call while she was on the phone with 911 operators, according to court documents.
She said the man pointed a black semi-automatic gun at her and said, "You're going to be OK, just stay still." Mills told investigators that the man asked her where the money was in the house. While they were talking, another man came upstairs, and the two men took Mills to the basement, according to court documents.
In the basement, she gave the two men the money she had. It wasn't clear from court records how much money was taken. The men then asked once more whether she had any more money in the house. Once she told them she did not, she returned to the first floor.
Mills told police she found Jouravleff lying on the floor near the front door bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds, according to court documents.
She also said her husband told her that when he answered the door, one of the men said they were there because a former co-worker recently had been fired, according to court documents. The co-worker has not been charged in connection with the incident.
Mills told police she had fired a man from her moving business, A. Best Movers Inc., shortly before the home invasion because $3,000 was missing and she thought he had taken it, according to court documents. She also said she thought the two men who came to her home knew she had money there because they had an employee meeting the day before.
During that meeting, another employee gave her a large amount of money from jobs he had done the week before, according to court documents. Morris was one of the employees at the meeting, according to court records.
