He was driving a company vehicle, but was NOT working for Spectrum when he entered the home to steal the credit cards (and when caught in the act) kill the homeowner. (He worked at the house the day before, not the day of the robbery turned murder.
so when any worker brakes an rule they can't just say NOT working for them at the time and get out of it.

No. In this case the employee had no work related reason to be at that house. He returned on his own time to commit a crime and his employer had no reason for him to be there. It would be like suing your employer if you decided to kill someone in a road rage incident. Sure, your employer should have seen the warning signs and had you committed or medicated before your rage reached that level - but is your employer truly responsible for your actions 24x7x365? If you punched someone in a bar would your employer be responsible (unless a superior employee was present and told you to hit someone)?
really?
If you punched someone in a bar would your employer be responsible maybe not but if say
If you punched someone in a bar the day after working an service call at the same bar for your employer then it's not the same thing.
