Mom Finds Intruder In 5-Year-Old's Bedroom

Man, 21, Charged With
Breaking And Entering

If the door was unlocked, shouldn't he have just been charged with "Entering?"

Ah, the definition: "...the pushing open of a door that is ajar followed by entrance into a building will be sufficient to constitute the 'breaking and entering' elements of burglary."

Although, another definition mentions "criminal intent" which, I don't know if there was any in this case.
