Intruder in Frances Bean Cobain Home Invasion Charged With First Degree Burglary
Over the weekend, we reported that a man was arrested for breaking into Frances Bean Cobain’s home in Los Angeles. Now, not only has that man has been formally charged, some strange details have emerged surrounding the case.
According to TMZ, the intruder who broke into Cobain’s home on Oct. 13 was 22-year-old Mark James Franco. Police report that Franco is a homeless man who was found brazenly doing his laundry when he was discovered at the home.
The daughter of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love wasn’t home at the time of the crime. The uninvited guest was discovered by a relative taking care of Cobain’s dog while she was out of town. The intruder claimed to have known the home owner, but when Frances Bean was contacted, she told authorities she had no idea who he was.
Franco was charged with first degree burglary, a crime that could land him a six year prison stay if convicted. He pleaded not guilty to the charges. The famously quiet Cobain has not yet publicly commented on the situation.
