JACKSON, Michigan (AP) -- The party game asked people to name the stupidest thing they had ever done. Police say Jerry Rose answered, "Shot a guy in the head."

Now, Rose is charged with murder and armed robbery in the March 22 slaying of 60-year-old Edgar Hawke.

Hawke's wife and 14-year-old granddaughter found his body at the bottom of the basement stairs in his Parma Township home. A large amount of cash and a .22-caliber rifle were missing, The Jackson Citizen Patriot reported Saturday.

Police were making little headway in their investigation until officers in neighboring Calhoun County questioned Rose's girlfriend about a series of break-ins. She told them about Rose's confession during a summer party, and they gave the information to Jackson County sheriff's detectives.

Rose, 29, was arrested Wednesday at his mother's home. He was arraigned Friday and was being held without bond pending a preliminary hearing November 15.

That's a good example of why I don't like party games that get a little too personal. One night you're having fun, the next night you're in court.

Instantly making that the second stupidest thing he'd ever done.

You can't rob Peter, Paul and Mary to pay yourself.

I could've sworn it was Col. Mustard in the library.
