NORTH VERNON, Ind. (AP) — A southern Indiana prosecutor has decided a man acted in self-defense when he fatally shot his daughter's boyfriend in the front yard of her home.
Jennings County Prosecutor Alan Marshall says no charges will be filed against 57-year-old Donald Williams of Commiskey. The Republic reports Williams has been out on bond since police arrested him on a preliminary charge of reckless homicide after the Sept. 9 shooting of 24-year-old Jeremy Moore in North Vernon.
Marshall says Williams went to the house after Moore had been to a hospital with drug-abuse problems. A witness saw Moore push and punch Williams in the face before Williams pulled out a handgun and shot Moore twice in the chest.
Hospital records show Williams suffered three jawbone fractures and a broken nose.
