CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (WXIN) -- A Florida community is in mourning after a teen boy gave his life protecting his little sister from an armed burglar, WBBH reports.

Khyler Edman, 15, was an honor student and a former member of the ROTC.

Last Thursday, police say Edman and his 5-year-old sister were inside their house when 27-year-old Ryan Cole forced the door open.

Cole is accused of stabbing Edman to death when the teen stopped him from hurting his sister.

Cole then broke into another nearby home before police captured him.

The teenager was killed while protecting his younger sibling after a career criminal, 27-year-old Ryan Cole, allegedly stabbed the teen while on a crime spree in the neighborhood.
