While he was away helping those impacted by Hurricane Florence, he said his home back in Charlotte was robbed.

Spc. Ocampo, 24, shares the home with his girlfriend, Kailey Finch, and their 1-year-old son.

Finch told WSOC that she was shocked when she learned about the break-in.

“I don’t know how people can be so terrible," she said.

She and her son were away when the burglars broke in Thursday night.

The family believes the suspects snuck in through a back window and ransacked the place.

“If I was (to) do that to someone, I feel like I would feel really bad afterwards. I would be like, ‘I see this family struggling and I just messed up their life even worse," said Finch.’”

According to officials, the thieves took a gun, a large TV, a gaming system, a laptop Ocampo uses for schoolwork and some specialty coins and jewelry.

“It's irreplaceable. It's not something you can get back," said Finch.

Beyond the valuables, Finch said her heart also breaks for her hardworking guardsman.

"He does a lot for everybody. He always wants to make sure that everybody gets help," she said.

The family told WSOC that they are considering an alarm system for their home and have started a GoFundMe to recover from the robbery.

Police do not have any suspects at this point.

Alaska man gets a 'pass' after pleading guilty to assaulting woman

An Alaska man escaped jail time Wednesday after pleading guilty to assaulting a woman who said he sexually assaulted and strangled her until she lost consciousness, KTVA reported.

Justin Schneider, 34, of Anchorage, was convicted on four felony charges -- including kidnapping and assault -- and a misdemeanor charge for the August 2017 incident. But after striking a deal with the state, Schneider was given a “pass,” KTVA reported.

In exchange for pleading guilty to a single felony assault charge, Schneider was given a two-year jail sentence with one year suspended, the television station reported. He faces no additional jail time because he received credit for time served while wearing an ankle monitor and living with his family, KTVA reported.

Anchorage Assistant District Attorney Andrew Grannik said Wednesday he agreed to the plea deal based on Schneider's enrollment and progress in a treatment program. An expert's assessment that Schneider would not be a repeat offender also played into Grannik’s decision, the television station reported. 

“I would like the gentleman to be on notice that that is his one pass -- it's not really a pass -- but given the conduct, one might consider that it is,” Grannik said. 

"I would just like to emphasize how grateful I am for this process," Schneider told the court. "It has given me a year to really work on myself and become a better person and a better husband, and a better father, and I'm very eager to continue that journey."

Alaska Criminal Division Director John Skidmore, who independently reviewed the case, said the sentence was consistent with current sentencing laws in Alaska.

“Though it is understandable that some feel his sentence was not sufficiently harsh, all prosecutors are ethically required to follow the law, no matter how disturbing the facts may be,” Skidmore said in a statement.

As part of the plea deal, Schneider will be on probation for three years.

A state herpetologist released new details about a two-headed baby Eastern copperhead snake found outside a home in Woodbridge, Virginia, WTVR reported.

The snake was examined at the Wildlife Center of Virginia.

The center received the snake on Sept. 20, according to the center’s website

“It appears as though the left head is more dominant -- it’s generally more active and responsive to stimulus,” the center said on its website. “Radiographs revealed that the two-headed snake has two tracheas (the left one is more developed), two esophaguses (the right one is more developed), and the two heads share one heart and one set of lungs. Based on the anatomy, it would be better for the right head to eat, but it may be a challenge since the left head appears more dominant.”

Photos and video of the snake went viral on Facebook after Virginia Wildlife Management and Control shared them earlier this month, WTVR reported.
