Police officer who killed man stabbing woman not charged
FAIRFIELD, Ohio (AP) — A prosecutor says a police officer who fatally shot a man while the man was stabbing a woman in an Ohio home will not face any criminal charges.
Butler County’s prosecutor said in a statement Tuesday that a grand jury determined no charge was warranted against Fairfield police Officer Bryan Carnes. Authorities say Carnes fired several shots at 37-year-old Logan Williamson as Williamson stabbed Michelle Henry June 22 in Fairfield.
Williamson died at the scene. The 37-year-old Henry died at a hospital in the Cincinnati suburb.
Prosecutor Michael Gmoser (MOH’-zur) said Carnes “did his duty.”
Police records show officers were called to the home last year on a domestic violence report and Williamson was arrested for attacking Henry. The records also show Henry accused Williamson of trying to poison her.
