Haywood, also from Australia, faces life imprisonment if convicted, and also faces two additional felony charges of aggravated mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office says. He was arraigned on Tuesday (October 25th) at the County Superior Court in Van Nuys, California.
33 year old Kerr, who lives at the $2 million ranch in Malibu with her five year old son Flynn, was not at home at the time of the gruesome incident.
“There were no occupants in the house at the time of this incident. The incident took place on the property, but not inside the house,” Sergeant James Braden said to Dailymail.com.
A police spokesperson said about the incident at the time: “Deputies responded to a shots fired call in Malibu. They discovered a security guard had been involved in a physical altercation with an intruder. The guard was stabbed in the facial injury and he had minor injuries.”
“He produced a handgun and shot the intruder three to four times in the face and torso. Neither the guard nor the intruder has life threatening injuries,” the statement continued.
Kerr was married to English actor Orlando Bloom from 2010 to 2013, with whom she had her son, and is now engaged to Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel.
