DES MOINES (KWWL) -  Authorities say a Des Moines man who fatally stabbed an intruder likely won't be prosecuted.
   Police Sgt. Jason Halifax says 35-year-old Christopher Bear killed 34-year-old Jahron Parker after Parker attacked Bear at a house on Amos Avenue early Wednesday morning. Halifax says Parker was stabbed by Bear after Parker pulled a knife.
   Polk County Attorney John Sarcone says Bear's self-defense actions were legal and that "there's no basis to bring any charge at this time."
   Parker had been visiting a resident in the basement of the house when he went upstairs and pounded on the door of the enclosed porch. Police say Bear, who was a guest of the upstairs resident, answered the door and soon was attacked by Parker.
