BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A 31-year-old man is charged with breaking into two Billings homes, including one where his last name was written on the wall in his own blood.

The Billings Gazette reports (bit.ly/2hAdiVN) Timothy Robert Sloe appeared in Yellowstone County Justice Court on Wednesday. He remained jailed Thursday with his bail set at $5,000.

Prosecutors say a couple left their home for about 90 minutes on Jan. 2. When they returned, they found the doors open, a broken window, the name "Sloe" on the wall in blood and a shotgun that was not theirs.

Police learned the shotgun was taken from a nearby residence.

Officers arrested Sloe when a third homeowner called to report a man was banging on their door.

Court records say a DNA test determined blood at the first home matched Sloe.
