A Noble County, Ohio woman says a man showed up at her home covered in blood after being shot and told her he hid in the woods until dark and then went to her farmhouse because it was the first well-lighted house he saw.

Rose Schockling has a farmhouse on a hill in the tiny village of Fulda in rural southeastern Ohio.

The man told Schockling he answered a Craigslist job ad and was told he’d be erecting fences for a cattle farm.

Authorities investigating the wounding of that man and the death of another have charged a 16-year-old boy with attempted murder. Another suspect is in custody.

Schockling says the man was lucky he went the way he did because there were no houses for more than 2 miles in the other direction.
