INDIANA TOWNSHIP, Pa. — The 11 law enforcement officers weren’t looking for Christina Korbe when they showed up outside the sand-colored brick house on Woods Run Road just before 6 a.m. yesterday.
But she was there, armed with a .38-caliber handgun, and moments later FBI Agent Samuel Hicks — the first in the door behind a battering ram — lay dying. Last night she was charged with homicide in his death.
The agents and officers had a warrant for Robert Ralph Korbe, Ms. Korbe’s husband, when they arrived at the Korbe home in Indiana Township. They knew that he had skirmished with officers in the past — and even once dislocated an officer’s shoulder. But he wasn’t considered to be the most dangerous of the 35 people they were seeking in a drug round-up yesterday.
According to a police affidavit, the officers knocked on the door and ordered Mr. Korbe, 38, to give himself up. When he refused,officers burst through the front door.

UPDATE (1:55 p.m.) — AP is reporting that bail was denied for Christina Korbe.
